UN failed in Sri Lanka - Ban Ki-moon

2013 Sep 25

Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon said that internal review of UN action in Sri Lanka during the final stages of the war had identified a 'systematic failure' on its part.

Addressing the 68th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, he claimed that member states did not provide the UN system with support to meet the tasks they themselves had set while the system did not adapt properly or deliver fully.

This is the first time the UN Secretary-General stated at the UN General Assembly that the UN methodology was at an unsuccessful level during the war period in Sri Lanka.
