Govt’s actions inhibit reconciliation: Sampanthan tells top UN official

Leader of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Rajavarothiam Sampanthan has informed Assistant Secretary-General and Executive Director of the United Nations Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED) Michele Coninsx that the actions of the government inhibit reconciliation.

He made this observation, when he met her in Colombo recently. Sampanthan said:

"Non-commitment of the implementation of the UNHRC resolution and the resolutions passed in Sri Lankan Parliament to introduce a new Constitution shows that this government is working according to a different agenda. The government seemed to have forgotten the fact that it had co-sponsored those resolutions, and its actions rarely focused on the implementation of the resolution.

We are unhappy with this situation; this is not good for the country and certainly not good for the United Nations. If a government thinks that it can promise anything to the international community and completely ignore and do as per its own wish, such actions put the very fundamental purposes of the existence of institutions such as the United Nations into question.

Tamils do not want another war in the country as they had suffered immensely due to the war. We do not want any harm to befall the Sinhala people. But sadly this country has been run by extreme elements and the Sinhala leaders are not willing to control them.

We urge the international community to play an effective and constructive role in holding the government accountable for its commitments.

We want a political solution within the framework of a united undivided and indivisible country and if we do not get this then the Tamil people will be compelled to rethink their stance on their longstanding demands."
