The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) adopted the draft resolution on Sri Lanka without a vote.

The resolution gives Sri Lanka a two-year extension on Resolution to fulfill its commitments for reconciliation and transnational justice.

The resolution was cosponsored by 40 countries  including the United States, the United Kingdom, Macedonia and Montenegro giving Sri Lanka a two-year extension to fulfill obligation relating to reconciliation and accountability.

While welcoming Sri Lanka’s ‘promising progress’ in constitutional reforms, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein earlier urged the government to set up mechanisms to implement the resolution adopted at the UNHRC in 2015.

He also stated that that although progress to establish transitional justice mechanisms has been slow, he is heartened by the recent report of the Consultation Task Force on Reconciliation Mechanisms, synthesizing  thousands of submissions from across all ethnic and religious groups.
