Speaking at an organisational meeting last week, ahead of the 30 th session on 24 August, 2015 delivering a statement US Ambassador Keith Harper said we plan to offer a resolution on Sri Lanka to follow up on the new Sri Lankan government’s efforts to promote reconciliation and accountability.
“On behalf of a core group, we plan to offer a resolution on Sri Lanka to follow up on the new Sri Lankan government’s efforts to promote reconciliation and accountability and on the release of the report of the OHCHR investigation requested in HRC resolution 25/1. We hope to work collaboratively with the new government of Sri Lanka and key stakeholders on this text”. The first informal has been scheduled for September 17 in Room 24 from 10 to noon.
The United States intends to offer a resolution on Sudan which would continue the important monitoring work of the Independent Expert or an appropriate special procedure and reflect the facts on the ground about the human rights situation. We look forward to working with other delegations on this resolution.(US Mission)
