Lanka rejects US law makers call PDF Print E-mail

Ministry of External Affairs Director General of Public Communication and Spokesperson Bandula Jayasekera says “We have a robust domestic mechanism in the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton herself has said the Commission must be given time and space to complete its task,”
