Apr 03, Colombo: The government of Sri Lanka has decided to commence a dialogue with academics, business community and members of the civil society on the impact of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution on Sri Lanka.

External Affairs Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris told the media that the government is hopeful of formulating strategies to counter the resolution through insights received during the dialogue.

He said that facing the UNHRC resolution is a national issue and the insights from academics, business community and the civil society would be beneficial to the government.

The Minister will first meet with a group of academics and later with members of the business community and the civil society.

The UNHRC last week adopted a resolution which calls for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to to hold an investigation into the alleged human rights violations in Sri Lanka.
