Sri Lanka – Question for Short Debate in House of Lords – lead by Lord Naseby,
British Baron Lord Naseby has said Sri Lanka is not a country that has to be monitored by the Western countries almost everyday, the Politics Home reported today.
He said now is the time for closure and to let Sri Lanka stand on its own two feet.
“Is this really a country that has to be monitored by the West almost every day. My view as President of the All Party British Sri Lanka Parliamentary Group is no. I shall put all these points and more in a Debate. I shall finish by reminding Her Majesty’s Government of the old adage ‘keep your friendships in repair’. We may well need Sri Lanka’s friendship again soon over Brexit,” he said.
He said about six months ago, he was conscious that the UN Motions on Sri Lanka would be reviewed in March 2019 by the UNHCR in Geneva.
