President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said on Tuesday that Sri Lanka needs to “correct the misconceptions” of the global community on its human rights policies as he promised “justice” for missing persons during the civil war with the LTTE.
“We reject racism. The present government wants to safeguard the dignity and rights of every citizen in this country in a uniform manner,” President Rajapaksa said while addressing a new session of parliament.
“Therefore I urge those politicians who continue to incite people against each other for narrow political gains to stop doing so,” he said. Rajapaksa said that he was willing to take suggestions. “We need to correct the misconceptions that have been taken to the international community in the past regarding our human rights,” he said.
