The United States are scheduled to present its resolution on Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council sessions today (March 15).

The presentation of the resolution has been entered into the official agenda of the day while amendments to the resolution were permitted to be presented before 1pm yesterday.

Taking into account the objections raised last Friday, the resolution will include an appreciation of the government’s efforts thus far on the Human Rights front.
