UK - continue to urge Sri Lanka to implement resolution

The UK today reiterated its call on the Sri Lankan government to ensure the cosponsored resolutions at the UN Human Rights Council 30/1 and 34/1 were fully implemented. 

"We continue to urge Sri Lanka to fully implement the commitments made in resolutions 30/1 and 34/1, as the best way to ensure human rights and reconciliation and the long term peace and prosperity that is in the interests of all Sri Lankans," the UK said in a statement on Monday as the Sri Lanka's UPR was adopted at the Council. 

"We call upon Sri Lanka to introduce legislation requiring businesses to report publicly on efforts to ensure transparency in supply chains, as part of Sri Lanka’s national action plan to combat human trafficking," the statement also noted.
