The sixth session of the second Youth Parliament of Sri Lanka, commenced on Saturday morning.
The Youth Parliament Session commenced at the Sri Lanka Youth Centre in Maharagama on Saturday under the auspices of the Minister of External Affairs, Professor G.L. Peiris.
Topics such as peace, development, human rights, the challenges and new opportunities that are available for the youth of the country are to be discussed during this session.
Minister of External Affairs, Prof. G.L. Peiris shared these views;
“With regard to the Geneva summit, we can take steps to halt all these resolutions by tomorrow morning. What should we do for this? We must give them what they are asking for? As a government we must decide if this is good for the country. Our government will never agree to go beyond its limits and do things that are harmful to the people of our country. Several countries have informed me that they do not see the justice in this. They say that since the resolution is being sponsored by the United States of America it is difficult for them to say no. That is why several countries say that they reject country specific resolutions. Is the United Nations pure? The Human Rights council in Geneva has distorted the process. Through our foreign policy we have built economic relations with countries that we had neglected. By affirming our political relations we have successfully extended a program to protect our integrity. We do not need to be fearful of Geneva. We are doing our best.”
