Description

Excerpt from Sri Lanka in Turmoil: Implications of Intensified Conflict: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific, Committee on International Relations, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourth Congress, First Session, November 14, 1995 What we might do best, I believe, first of all, is stay as far away from these things as we can. That is to say, keep the microphone at a distance. If there is an interest in this Administration of really doing something, then the second point might be surely to do it in a multilateral sense. As a correspondent, Mr. Chairman, I notice that the few times that the international community was able to do something of effect was when they got in concert with one an other, particularly through aid-giving mechanisms, as, for example, in 1990, with the introduction of up to 22 icrc delegates into Sri Lanka. That was achieved by the hard work of the Japanese and the British, and that work went mostly unpublicized. But, it was able to achieve its effects and reduce, I believe, some of the humanitarian excesses, human rights abuses. I think that that is what is required. Moreover, I would second Dr. Singer's urging that we quickly get an ambassador back into Colombo. I think it is precisely the sort of country where those issues matter a great deal. I will conclude my comments here, Mr. Chairman, and invite any questions you might have later on. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
