Sri Lanka has achieved considerable progress in implementing the recommendations made by the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) and ready to defend its record at the next session in Geneva, Foreign Secretary Karunathilaka Amunugama said.
The Foreign Secretary said that the government has done a lot to address post war issues in the country and has also briefed the international community on its progress.
"The US is entitled to its views but Sri Lanka is ready to respond to the resolution. We have made substantial progress on the recommendations made by the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) report and we have briefed the diplomatic community and media about this," Secretary Amunugama has told Xinhua news agency.
He said more than Rs.1200 million was allocated by the government in the November budget for the implementation of the LLRC recommendations.
We are working closely with the presidential secretariat and monitoring the progress. The steering committee headed by Lalith Weeratunga is currently updating the implementation methodologies undertaken by many agencies and we believe that we have done beyond what was required by the resolution, Mr. Amunugama said.
