Sat, Feb 8, 2014, 01:24 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 08, Colombo: External Affairs Minister of Sri Lanka Prof. G.L. Peiris says the government has implemented 85 percent of the recommendations in the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) report.

The Minister has told parliament that some of the recommendations in the report needed to be implemented and that it could not be done overnight.

Peiris has made this statement in response to a question raised by United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian Sajith Premadasa.

The Minister added that the government will continue with the implementation work of the LLRC recommendations.

Minister Peiris and Secretary to the President Lalith Weeratunga, who chairs the Committee Monitoring the National Plan of Action on the Implementation of the LLRC recommendations, had briefed the diplomatic community in December last year on the plan's latest progress.

Last month Weeratunga also briefed the Permanent Representatives to the United Nations in Geneva and the US on the progress made in implementing the recommendations.

The President's Secretary has said that the government has done all that was humanly possible to implement the recommendations of the National Plan of Action on the implementation of the LLRC.
