SRI LANKA’S FAILURE TO ADDRESSHUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS


Bhubaneswar - A draft resolution based on Sri Lanka’s failure to address the

human rights violations and war crimes committed in the past was addressed in

a crucial session of the United Nations Human Rights Council on March 22 nd.

This had put Sri Lanka on a very gloomy path that could lead to a recurrence of

policies and practices that gave rise to the earlier situation.

India has been asked by Sri Lanka to help them by supporting against the

resolution. This is the first time India has been asked for such help but it finds

itself having to weigh several geopolitical concerns, not least the growing

influence of China in Sri Lanka. What factors could go into India’s vote and

what ramifications will it have for the geopolitics of the region.
