The Friday Forum says that six years were lost since the end of the war, as the previous government undermined efforts to seek truth about the tragic past and failed to deliver a political solution to ensure the dignity and co-existence of all communities.

It adds that the resolution of the HRC imposes obligations on the government in critical areas that are vital to ensure accountability, and the future of our nation.

The Friday Forum notes that the government must now act with statesmanship and not compromise on its pledges to the people and as a member of the United Nations.

It goes on to note that one should not approach selectively, the commitments undertaken, for all of them are in the public interest. It is vital that the government avoid the trap of ignoring some commitments while taking forward others considered easier to implement.

The statement reads that devolution and institutional reforms to move from militarisation to civilian control, a judicial process of accountability for crimes, and interventions that can develop an environment of trust and reconciliation among all communities, must be equally important national priorities, for both citizens and government.
