Dec 16, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government says the UN has not yet informed the government of the setting up of a Working Group the agency to consider the recommendations of the Internal Review Panel report on UN actions in Sri Lanka.

Secretary to the External Affairs Ministry Karunatilaka Amunugama has said the UN is yet to contact the government following UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon's statement on action to be taken following the release of the Review Panel Report.

UN Spokesperson Martin Nesirky last week said the Deputy Secretary-General has sent a letter to relevant heads of UN departments, offices, funds and programmes asking them to nominate representatives to participate in a working group to give careful consideration to the recommendations set out in the Internal Review Panel report.

According to Amunugama, the internal review committee had made some recommendations, but has not informed anything to the Sri Lankan government.
