Mar 12, Colombo: Sri Lanka's major Tamil political party, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has discussed the resolution submitted to the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Sri Lanka with the US and British envoys in the country.
A TNA delegation led by R. Sampanthan has met US and British envoys in Colombo and held lengthy discussions with the envoys.
The TNA delegation comprising parliamentarians Mavai Senathirajah and M.A Sumanthiran had separately met British High Commissioner John Rankin and the US Embassy Chargé d'Affaires William Weinstein in Colombo, local media reported.
During the discussion, the TNA delegation has pointed out that they are not satisfied with the US-sponsored resolution as it is inadequate to address the issues.
The group has told the diplomats that several more issues such as finding a rapid political solution, demilitarization and confining security forces in the north and land ownerships should be included in the resolution.
TNA MP Suresh Premachandran was earlier quoted in the media as saying that the text of the draft resolution before the UNHRC should be made harsher.
The participating diplomats of US and UK have reportedly agreed with the TNA delegation to discuss their demands with their leaders.
