Parliament approves U.S resolution on domestic mechanism


The U.S. Resolution which was submitted to UNHRC by supporting a domestic mechanism for Sri Lanka has been tabled in parliament by Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera this morning.

However MP Dinesh Gunawardana told parliament just before the resolution was tabled that U.S. Resolution which was co-sponsored by Sri Lanka has not been presented to parliament yet.

At that time, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said that the U.S. Resolution has already been uploaded on the Foreign Ministry Website.

He also said that 47 countries including China and Russia have pledged their support towards this resolution.

At this juncture, leader of the house minister Lakshman Kiriella said that MP Dinesh Gunawardana is questioning the resolution even without reading its content.
