The task force appointed to oversee the implementation of the recommendations made by the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) is making progress, the Secretary to the President Lalith Weeratunga said.
According to the Secretary, the task force has selected 33 recommendations out of the 135 listed by the LLRC to be implemented at the national level.
Some of the recommendations will be implemented this year while the others may be implemented next year after the budget for 2013 is prepared since the 2012 budget allocations to the ministries have been done before the release of the LLRC report last year, Secretary said.
The Secretary to the President denied that there was a secret plan submitted to the United States during the meeting between External Affairs Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris and the Secretary of State Hilary Clinton last month and said that the task force which had met as many as five times will make its progress public soon.
He has said the government had apprised the US government on some of the practical difficulties in implementing the recommendations.
