A statement on the progress of measures implemented by Sri Lanka to uphold human rights in the country, is to be delivered by U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein in Geneva on the 21st of next month.
A delegation from Sri Lanka will leave for Geneva to address the UN session in this regard.
The Government says the delegation will submit the progress of measures reviewed by the Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission.
In 2015, Sri Lankan adopted resolution 30/1 to implement reconciliation and uphold human rights following the conclusion of the war.
Later in 2017, Sri Lanka requested a 2-year extension of the period to fulfil its commitment to the resolution, which was agreed to by the UN Human Rights Council.
U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein is to address Sri Lanka’s progress in this regard during the 36th session of the Commission, which gets underway next month.
