COLOMBO (News 1st) – Sri Lanka's Foreign Minister Ali Sabry PC told reporters that the UN Human Rights Council is unnecessarily intervening in the country's internal matters.

Sri Lanka's Foreign Minister Ali Sabry PC said if anyone is responsible for economic crimes, they will be dealt with according to the law of the country.

He said Sri Lanka does not accept the term Economic Crimes mentioned by the UN Human Rights Commissioners report, and what Sri Lanka requires now is Economic Reforms.

The Foreign Minister said that the UNHRC does have the expertise to educate Sri Lanka on Economic Reforms.

He said it is the IMF and the World that possess the expertise in economic reforms.

The Foreign Minister said Sri Lanka together with the IMF, World Bank, and the Debt restructuring experts are engaged in discussions for economic reforms.

He slammed the UNHRC for forcibly keeping Sri Lanka on the agenda without allowing the country to move forward, adding that there is unnecessary intervention in Sri Lanka's internal matters.
