Indian External Affairs Minister S. M. Krishna referring to the US sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka at the 19th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, yesterday said that Sri Lanka is engaged with all parties in an effort to achieve a forward-looking outcome based on reconciliation, accountability rather than deepening confrontation and mistrust between the concerned parties.

Making a special statement in the Indian parliament over the US sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka, the Indian External Affairs Minister said a view on this issue will be taken as and when the time is finalized for consideration of the draft resolution on Sri Lanka at the UNHRC. “I may mention that the issue of human rights allegations against Sri Lanka is yet to come up for formal discussion at the 19th session of UN Human Rights Council,” he said.

He said that India will need to consider the implications of the country's action carefully on such sensitive issues. "Any assertions on our part may have implications on our historically friendly relations with a neighbouring country.

He said that India will have to examine whether its action will actually assist in the process of reconciliation in Sri Lanka and enhance the current dialogue between the government, Tamil parties including the Tamil National Alliance.
