Jan 22, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party said it has not made a decision on sending its parliamentarians to Geneva with the government delegation to participate in the United Nations Human Rights Council sessions in March.

Speaking to local media UNP parliamentarian Kabir Hashim said the party has not made any decisions as some media reports have noted but the party is ready to discuss members' participation if the government extended an invitation to do so.

The party has so far not received any such invitation from the government, Hashim added.

Local media reports said that UNP MPs, Lakshman Kiriella and Ms. Thalatha Atukorale have been designated to participate in the UNHRC session along with the government delegation.

However, MP Lakshman Kiriella has said that he would participate in a session organized by the Inter Parliamentarian Association in Geneva next March but not in the UNHRC sessions.
