India Watering Down SrI lanka Resalution?




At the eleventh hour before a crucial United Nations Human Rights Council resolution calling on Sri Lanka to improve the post-war welfare of ethnic Tamils on the island, the U.S. appears to have watered down the text of that resolution.

Washington’s revised draft copy of the resolution, which was freely circulating on the Internet by Tuesday, in particular hinted at at least one major change from an earlier version: an entire paragraph calling for “unfettered access” in Sri Lanka by a host of external observers and specialists was deleted.

A second key change in the text appeared to be regarding UNHRC’s call for an external investigation into alleged human rights violations in Sri Lanka, during the final phase of the combat between Sri Lankan forces and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam in which many civilians were said to have been killed and injured.
