COLOMBO (News1st): The UN Core Group on Sri Lanka has confirmed it will be submitting a resolution on Sri Lanka at the upcoming UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) sessions beginning on February 22.

Julian Braithwaite, the Permanent Representative to the UK in Geneva, said that the resolution will be based on the recent report on Sri Lanka by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet.

Education minister Prof. G.L. Peiris has insisted that the UNHRC must always work within its scope.

“The Human Rights Council of the United Nations does not have the right to interfere with the internal affairs of a country,” he told media on Tuesday.

The minister insisted that the country’s constitution must be given priority regardless of any investigation.
