The Prime Minister told Channel 4 television, Sri Lanka will stand by its commitments in Geneva on the UN resolution.
“He has not ruled it out,” Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said when asked if President Maithripala Sirisena has ruled out foreign involvement in the process.
He noted that whatever the Government does, the public must stand to benefit and that will be the focus of the entire reconciliation process.
The Prime Minister also asserted that by May this year, any doubts on the commitment of the Government to address the issues related to the war will be laid to rest.
Wickremesinghe also said that there are doubts on the 40,000 figure estimated by some as the number of those killed during the final stages of the war.
“We are interested in finding out the actual number,” he said.
The Prime Minister also said that several people still reported missing after the war and who have not returned home are most probably dead.
He said that investigations will be conducted to find out how they died and what happened to them. (Colombo Gazette)
