The US has expressed its disappointment at India’s abstention from voting for the US-led resolution on Sri Lanka at the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Deputy Spokesperson of the US State Department Marie Harf expressed these views at a press briefing on Friday.

She noted that it is disappointing to the US that India abstained from voting on the resolution when they voted in favour of the past resolutions.

Furthermore, she said that for the first time, this resolution requests a comprehensive investigation to be undertaken by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights into alleged violations and abuses of human rights and related crimes.
