TNA to gather support for the UN resolution

tna 2    The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) says it will gather support for the UN resolution on Sri Lanka to be submitted at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in March.

TNA leader R. Sampanthan said that the resolution sponsored by the United States is expected to be very critical.

He said that the TNA has urged the United States to ensure the resolution brings a solution to the Tamil issue.

Sampanthan said this after the TNA central committee met in Trincomalee.

He said that the TNA will have meetings with UNHRC member countries and seek their support for the resolution.

Sampanthan said that the Government is having talks with some countries, particularly Muslim countries, in order to seek support against the resolution.

However he expressed confidence in the resolution being passed by a majority when it is taken up for a vote in Geneva. (Colombo Gazette)
