US pushes Sri Lanka for credible war crimes probe
Washington: The United States Friday
warned Sri Lanka of a possible international enquiry if adequate steps were not taken by Colombo for a credible probe into charges of humanitarian crimes during the LTTE war.
"We would like the Sri Lankan Government to take it`s
responsibility and establish the kind of accountable system that its people can have confidence it," US State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters at her daily news conference.
"If that does not happen and does not happen
expeditiously, then we reserve the right to discuss
international mechanisms," Nuland added in response to a
question, but did not specify any time line for this.
"I’m not going to set artificial timelines from this
podium, but we understand the frustration and the concern of
Sri Lankan people," she said.
"This is Sri Lankan Government`s responsibility that we
want to see them take on for the good of their own nation,"
