Will review UNHCR Resolution - Dinesh

Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardene yesterday said that steps would be taken to review and withdraw the resolutions and agreements submitted at the UN Human Rights Council which would undermine the country’s independence and sovereignty. The Minister was addressing the media after assuming duties at his Ministry yesterday morning.

Gunawardene said he would give priority to rebuilding Sri Lanka’s image among non-aligned countries.

“The non aligned nations have had very close relations with us. We should give priority in rebuilding these relations,” he said. He said that the new government was committed to maintaining the non aligned policy while giving utmost priority to national security. “The government expects cooperation from all countries for our development effort. We expect the co-operation from all nations and international agencies to make this endeavour a reality,” he said.
