It is unfair to impose an obligation on Sri Lanka to report in just three months - Malaysia

 

While claiming that Malaysia’s abstention at the vote on the UNHRC resolution On Sri Lanka was not a double standard, the Malaysia Government says it is unfair to impose an obligation on Sri Lanka to report in just three months.

Malaysian Foreign Affairs Deputy Minister Richard Riot said, during the wind-up on the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong’s Speech in Kuala Lumpur, that Sri Lanka’s problems were too complex to solve in a short time.

He said that the country, which had fought a civil war between 1972 to 2009, tabled a report investigating the war’s atrocities in its own parliament on Dec 16, 2011.

Sri Lanka’s national reconciliation process as a domestic issue, FreeMalaysia.com reported quoting the Deputy Minister.

He also claimed that Malaysia’s abstention was not a double standard and that the country did not interfere in other countries’ domestic affairs.
