Convening a media briefing on Thursday, the JVP made its stance clear over the resolution that is to be brought before the United Nations Human Rights Council by several countries including the United States, on Sri Lanka.

Speaking on the issue,  JVP Politburo Member, MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake stated:

“Sri Lanka is the centre of focus in the international arena at this time. Therefore, our diplomatic services need to be strengthened. We have 64 international missions. Forty-Two (42) of these 64 missions are politically-influenced appointments. Do you think that such a group can appear on behalf of the country, the democracy of the country and its human rights?

He further asked:

“What sort of understanding do they have? Firstly, they opened the doors for the international community to make allegations against the country. They disregarded democracy and human rights in the country and paved way for the Western nations to enter the nation. Their tactic is to say that they are being taken to the electric chair so please cast your vote to the betel leaf.”
