UK reiterates commitment to reconciliation in SL

The UK has reiterated its commitment to reconciliation and accountability in Sri Lanka. 

FCO Director for South Asia and Afghanistan Gareth Bayley expressed these views during a meeting with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) leadership yesterday(13). 

TNA leader R. Sampanthan recently said that the international community was duped into believing that a political solution could be reached following the defeat of the LTTE.

Sampanthan also called for an acceptable and satisfactory political solution be brought by the new government in terms of the 13th amendment.

However, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa last week told the European Union (EU) that Sri Lanka cannot fully implement the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.
