The Sri Lankan government renewed a call for the main Tamil partyto join a parliamentary select committee to discuss minority issues on Thursday amid the island’ s human rights record being criticized at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) sessions.

“We have invited the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) to participate in a Parliamentary Select Committee comprised of all political parties belonging to different ethnicities to discuss an inclusive power sharing mechanism but they have so far refused to do so. We are prepared for discussions so all we can do is ask them to participate again,” said government spokesman and Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella.
