UN Resolution is not detrimental to Sri Lanka: Samarasinghe

Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe has stated that the UN Resolution is not detrimental to the interest of the country. There is no truth in such an allegation made by certain politicians.

Addressing a media meeting sponsored by Sri Lanka Freedom Party, he stated that even politicians of Tamil Nadu have made statements that the UN Resolutions do not have enough teeth to deal with Sri Lanka and that the original resolution has been watered down. These observations have been made by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha and former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Karunanithy. That shows that the resolution is favourable to us.

He added that President Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe have restored the image of the country.
