Hon. Minister Samarasinghe responds to the Resolution on Sri Lanka

Madam President, 


Thank you for this opportunity, as the country concerned, to outline our position in respect of the draft resolution before the Council.


Many in this Council would agree that Sri Lanka has been a role model of, consistently and unambiguously, engaging with everyone in the Council; not just on this occasion but over the years. This engagement has been voluntary and was not restricted to a period in the aftermath of the conflict, but occurred even during the height of the long-drawn-out armed conflict, against one of the worst manifestations of terrorism.
