The US say in a prepared statement delivered at the UN Human Rights Council’s 37th Session in Geneva on March 19.
The statement says,
Although we are pleased with the Government’s support for these recommendations, we are concerned by ongoing reports of human rights violations and abuses by members of the security services, and recent attacks targeting members of religious minority communities. We urge the government to hold accountable all those responsible for human rights abuses and violations and to protect religious minorities and their places of worship. We further urge the government to take additional steps to fully implement the commitments it made in HRC resolution 30/1 and reaffirmed in HRC resolution 34/1.
We look forward to seeing Sri Lanka’s progress on implementing the UPR recommendations accepted by the government over the next five years.
