Sri Lanka to use CHOGM to wash war crimes


Sri Lanka will look to use the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in November next year to wash the war crime allegations against the Sri Lankan government, the Colombo sources said.

The Minister of External Affairs, Prof. G.L Peiris made a comment, while addressing a distinguished gathering, following the ceremonial inauguration of the Taskforce Secretariat for CHOGM 2013, located at the BMICH premises in Colombo.

He pointed out that Speakers of national Parliaments and other parliamentarians who attended the recently concluded 58th session of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association in Colombo were able to experience for themselves at firsthand the peace and tranquility in the island, as well as witness the impressive economic transformation that Sri Lanka is undergoing, during their travel throughout the length and breadth of the country.

These delegates would be able to effectively counter the false and malicious propaganda against Sri Lanka when they return home, he said.
