Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera had talks with the President of the Global Tamil Forum Father S. J. Emmanuel in Geneva last week.
Father Emmanuel told the Colombo Gazette he met Samaraweera and a Sri Lankan delegation for abot45 minutes behind closed doors.
“In all my meetings I have openly said that I do it as an act of critical and constructive collaboration by a moderate diaspora organization and from me as one of the oldest victim and witness of this conflict right from June 1956. Hence our exchanges are about helping one another,” he said.
Father Emmanuel also said that while expressing some dissatisfaction and disappointment at the ongoing accountability process, he will not lose hope and will remain on the path of truth and justice with the help of the UNHRC. (Colombo Gazette)
