Mar 30, Colombo: Three ministers in the Sri Lankan government representing the left movement in the country have called for the implementation of the recommendations made by the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC).
Leader of the Democratic Left Front, Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara, Secretary of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party, Minister Prof. Tissa Vitharana and Secretary of the Communist Party of Sri Lanka, Minister D.E.W. Gunasekera have joined to form a Socialist People's Front.
The Ministers have said that the international community had interfered in an internal issue of the country due to the failure to resolve certain issues.
They have noted that the best way to prevent the international community form further interfering in the country's affairs is to implement the recommendations of the LLRC.
The governing United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) consists of 16 political parties with each party having its own stance on the LLRC recommendations.
However, the left ministers say that the governing party members could discuss the matter and reach consensus on implementing the LLRC recommendations.
The United Nations Human Rights Council last week adopted a resolution calling the Sri Lankan government to expeditiously implement the LLRC recommendations and put forward an action plan to investigate the allegations of war crimes against the government.
According to the three ministers, the solution to the current situation is to promptly implement the LLRC recommendations.
