Message from Hon. Minister of External Affairs to mark the 25th Anniversary of the signing of the SAARC Charter

Non ci sono traduzioni disponibili.

Twenty-five years ago, the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation came into being when the leaders of
Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka placed their signatures to a Charter that embodies
the enduring hopes and dreams of the people of South Asia. Since then, our Association has been strengthened with
Afghanistan joining the SAARC family at the 14th Summit.
When we reflect on our journey spanning twenty-five years, there is much that we as a Region can hail as our
achievements. We have put in place mechanisms and institutions necessary to carry out our work and thereby made
progress, to promote conditions for fruitful regional cooperation.

Non ci sono traduzioni disponibili.

It gives me great pleasure to felicitate Dr. (Mrs.) Hiranthi Wijemanne, who was elected to the United Nations Committee
on the Rights of the Child (CRC) with broad and substantial support from the entire gamut of UN Members who are
States Party to the CRC. It would be pertinent to note in this regard that the election was keenly contested with 23
candidates coming forward, for only nine available posts.
The CRC is a key instrument established by the international community to work collaboratively to ensure the protection,
welfare and development of children, thereby ensuring a better and brighter future for all humanity. Accordingly, in the
election process, inevitable evaluations are made both of the contribution in this regard by the candidate, as well as by
the nominating country.

Meeting between the External Affairs Minister and the US Ambassador

Non ci sono traduzioni disponibili.

External Affairs Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris invited the US Ambassador Ms. Patricia Butenis to meet with him on Tuesday,
21st December, in the context of news reports that several United States Senators and Members of Congress had
addressed on the 10th of December, a letter concerning Sri Lanka to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The Minister pointed out to the US Ambassador that the text of the letter as carried by the media, appears among other
matters to assert that the effort of the Government of Sri Lanka through the Lessons Learnt & Reconciliation Commission
(LLRC) lacks mandate and broad scope. The Minister noted that on the contrary, the Terms of Reference establishing
the Commission expressly call for it to make recommendations to prevent recurrence of the inflicted strife of the past,
while promoting further national unity and reconciliation among all communities. Accordingly, the Commission has the
necessary amplitude for its effective functioning.

The LTTE's separatist war in Sri Lanka could easily have destabilized the region. The fact that it did not happen is
because of the preventive actions taken by Sri Lanka during and after the war to ensure stability. This is the regional
significance of the current situation in Sri Lanka.
In a wide-ranging address on Tuesday night to a representative gathering of journalists, diplomats and INGO and NGO
officials at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand in Bangkok, the Minister of External Affairs Prof G.L.Peiris dwelt
