UN says its stand on Sri Lanka loud and clear

Farhan HaqThe United Nations (UN) says its stand on Sri Lanka is clear and this has been articulated in several press statements issued by the UN office.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s Deputy Spokesperson Farhan Haq said that while anyone is free to issue statements on how the UN feels about Sri Lanka, the actual UN position is made clear in statements released by the UN.

Haq was responding to a question raised on a statement issued by the office of President Maithripala Sirisena following talks he had with UN Secretary General Ban -Ki-moon recently. (Colombo Gazette)
