Jan 29, Colombo: Sri Lanka's External Affairs Minister Prof. G. L. Peiris will meet his Indian counterpart Salman Khurshid in New Delhi today to hold discussions on several important issues.
Minister Peiris arrived in New Delhi on Tuesday for a three-day official visit during which he will hold discussions with Khurshid Wednesday on several important issues.
Among the urgent issues to be discussed are the fishermen's issue and the third US-sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka.
The Minister will also meet envoys accredited to Sri Lanka but based in New Delhi to apprise them of the government's progress in resolving the human rights issues and the measures taken to implement the recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC).
The US confirmed Tuesday that it will bring the third consecutive resolution against Sri Lanka at the United Nations Human Rights Council session in Geneva in March as a follow-up on the first two resolutions adopted in 2011 and 2012 with India's support.
"This resolution will build upon previous resolutions in 2012 and 2013, and will urge Sri Lanka to do more to promote reconciliation, justice and accountability in the wake of the civil conflict," the State Department said.
