Kuwait sees split on Lankan issue

2014 Mar 08

Kuwait feels draft resolutions put forward on Sri Lanka and two other countries at the UN Human Rights Council, will see a division in the Council, the Kuwait News Agency reported.

Kuwait’s permanent delegate to the United Nations and international organizations Ambassador Jamal Al-Ghunaim reiterated here on Thursday that the 25th session of the UN Council for Human Rights, which began its deliberations March 3 for a whole month is of special importance as it addressed a number of highly sensitive files.

He pointed out that Kuwait’s vision towards dealing with those files would be in line with the State of Kuwait’s membership in the Human Rights Council.

The ambassador expected that council would witness polirization on the draft resolutions put forward on Syria, Iran and Sri Lanka, where it is the first time in the history of the Council, where the five permanent UN Security Council members are also members of the Human Rights Council, taking into account that the council does not have the right of veto.
