The UN Human Rights Council

The Government is being pushed to meet its commitments in the implementation of the Resolution adopted by the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) last year.

One push came from the chairman of the US House Committee on Foreign Affairs Edward Royce who has sent a letter to US Secretary of State John Kerry.

In the letter, Royce expressed his support for increased diplomatic engagement with Sri Lanka in the wake of the country’s election last year and peaceful transfer of power.

He said that continued high level visits, such as Kerry’s visit in May of last year, demonstrate US commitment to Sri Lanka and recognition of its strategic location in the region.
