EU passes resolution on Sri Lanka

European Parliament

The European Parliament Thursday evening passed a resolution calling on the Sri Lankan government to implement the recommendation of the Reconciliation Committee in full.

The EP appreciates the restoration of peace and welcome the first ever elections in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. However, it notes with concern that “the presence of government military forces in the former conflict areas remains considerable” and that there are continuing reports of intimidation and human rights violations.
