May 19, Geneva: Sri Lanka at a special session of the Human Rights Council on the deteriorating human rights situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory held yesterday called for an end to violence and resort to dialogue for a solution based on the Two State solution.

Sri Lanka's Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva Ambassador A.L.A. Azeez, delivering a Statement on behalf of the Government of Sri Lanka at the 28th Special Session of the Human Rights Council on Friday (18 May) emphasized that the security of all civilians in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) should receive the utmost consideration and that their human rights should be upheld and protected at all times.

"We take this opportunity to call for an end to violence and violation of the right to life and dignity of all persons as well as respect for the International Law, "Ambassador Azeez said.

He said the dialogue remains the viable option to seek resolution of prevalent challenges, if peace were to return to all peoples in the region.

He further stressed that "Diplomacy and political leadership still have immense potential to carry dialogue through to success if pursued diligently, having regard to the fundamentals of a Two State solution."
