|Thursday, 19 September 2013|
Sri Lanka says, while there needs to be commitment at both national and international levels to achieve the right to development, there must be more focus on addressing the special needs of developing countries which are unequally impacted by structural problems, external events and global economic and financial crises.
Intervening during the discussion on the Report of the Working Group on the Right to Development at the ongoing 24th Session of the Human Rights Council on Friday (13 September 2013), Ms. Savitri Panabokke, Minister in the Sri Lanka Mission in Vienna said, Sri Lanka is of the view that the global dialogue on post-2015 development goals is an important opportunity for meaningful popular participation in global governance and the development process.
