External Affairs Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris said that Sri Lanka will not join friendly countries to present a counter resolution at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva in support of Sri Lanka. The Minister has made this statement at a meeting between President Mahinda Rajapaksa and foreign correspondents based in Colombo.
The President has reportedly told the foreign correspondents that there seems to be hidden factors behind the US move to submit a resolution on Sri Lanka at the UNHRC.
He has observed that the evidence referred to by the international community should be forwarded to the government if there is any such evidence to prove the allegations against the government.
The President has added that the government would look into such evidence if it is presented to them.
