Journalist Sunanda Deshapriya says that although spring is on its way to Geneva, spring has not yet come for the Sri Lankan government.

He said that Sri Lanka had won the Geneva resolution by an unexpected 22 votes and that this was the lowest turnout for Sri Lanka and that only dictatorial countries had voted for Sri Lanka.

He points out that after the resolution came out on February 22, four rounds of informal talks were held. Says Sunanda Deshapriya.

They also said that the report submitted by the High Commissioner was wrong and illegal. The Sri Lankan ambassador also said that this was an attempt to intimidate third world countries, but that only dictatorial countries accepted it.

He said that there were two important points that would be made when the resolution was passed and that the Commissioner for Human Rights would be able to submit reports on Sri Lanka every six to six months and that he would indirectly appoint a representative to Sri Lanka. Says.

He also emphasized that this was a power that the High Commissioner for Human Rights had never been given.
