The US Government yesterday urged Sri Lanka to come up with an action plan for reconciliation and accountability following the successful passage for its resolution at the UN Human Rights Council sessions on Thursday.


Following is the statement by the NSC Spokesman Tommy Vietor on Passage of Sri Lanka Resolution:   The United States Government applauds today’s passage of the UN Human Rights Council’s resolution on ‘Promoting reconciliation and accountability in Sri Lanka’. The resolution, which received broad support from around the world, calls for a range of critical steps that would go a long way to advancing the rights and dignity of the Sri Lankan people.
The United States urges the Sri Lankan Government to develop a comprehensive action plan for implementing steps on reconciliation and accountability, as called for in today’s resolution, and to work with UN experts and its partners in the international community to take meaningful action to achieve these important goals, which will be a critical part of Sri Lanka’s efforts to provide a bright, peaceful, and stable future for all of its people.  We stand ready to partner with Sri Lanka in this important effort.
