Speaking in Parliament today, the President said that even the UN Human Rights Council was split on the Sri Lanka issue but that situation had now changed.
He says the new Government was able to build good relations with all countries and the UN and ensure the international community took one stand on Sri Lanka.
The President said that during his recent visit to Malta he met with the leaders of Canada and Britain, two countries which in the past had a negative impression on Sri Lanka.
Sirisena said that during his meeting with British Prime Minister David Cemeron, the UK assured it will support moves to help Sri Lanka regain GSP plus and remove the EU ban on Sri Lankan fisheries products. (Colombo Gazette)
