UK hopes Lanka attends summit

Haguekilling 12Britain hopes Sri Lanka attends a summit in June which looks at preventing sexual violence in conflict situations. The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs William Hague told the British Parliament yesterday (Tuesday) that he is not able compel any Government to attend the summit but he has encouraged Sri Lanka to do so. “I have invited the 143 nations that so far have endorsed the declaration that I launched on ending sexual violence to attend the summit in June, but I cannot force any of them to do so. However, given events in Sri Lanka in recent decades, it would be highly appropriate for the Sri Lankan Government to be there and to present their plans. I have encouraged them to do so,” he said.
