Feb 13, Colombo: The United Kingdom on Monday announced that the Core Group on Sri Lanka will present a resolution at the 40th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) scheduled to be held from 25 February - 22 March 2019.

The Core Group on Sri Lanka, comprising Canada, Germany, Macedonia, Montenegro and the UK will present a resolution on promoting reconciliation, accountability and human rights in Sri Lanka, the representative of the UK announced at the UNHRC Organizational Meeting held on Monday.

"The Core Group will again be working in partnership with Sri Lanka and look to continue the cooperation which began in 2015 and maintain engagement with the Council as Sri Lanka works towards the implementation of the commitments in HRC resolution 30/1."

He said the draft text will be procedural in nature and seek to extend further the process established by the HRC in 2015.

"We will hold open informal negotiations in line with standard Council practice and hope to have the full support of the Council for the resolution once again," he added.
