The Sri Lankan government will send a high-powered delegation, led by External Affairs Minister G.L. Peiris, to attend the UNHRC sessions to be held in Geneva in March. The delegation will highlight the steps taken by the country to address accountability issues and the process of reconstruction, rehabilitation and reconciliation after the civil war.
Several member countries supporting Sri Lanka are reportedly planning to submit a counter-proposal against the U.S.-led resolution on Sri Lanka that called for an international
investigation into alleged war crimes during the last stages of the war.
UNHRC-member countries Russia and China already oppose the British and U.S.-sponsored resolution on Sri Lanka while friendly countries like Pakistan, Iran, the UAE and Indonesia have also expressed their reservations on the anti-Sri Lankan resolution.
