Sri Lanka: United Nations

Volume 493: debated on Tuesday 2 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what the Government’s policy is on the proposal for a UN special envoy to Sri Lanka. (277430)

We are not aware of any current proposals for a UN Special Envoy to Sri Lanka. We welcome the high level engagement by the UN, including the recent visits to Sri Lanka by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, his Chief of Staff Vijay Nambiar and UN Under Secretary for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes. We fully support the efforts of the UN in regard to the situation in Sri Lanka and welcome the UN Secretary-General’s continued involvement.
