NEW DELHI: India has yet again reiterated that it is “inclined” to vote for the US-sponsored resolution in the United Nations Human Rights Council on Sri Lanka, even though it is still not comfortable with an international probe into the alleged war crimes committed by the Sri Lankan military.

Answering media queries on whether India favoured an independent mechanism to probe war crimes in Sri Lanka,  Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai said that New Delhi had taken the stance that the issue should be dealt with by the Sri Lankan Government first.

 The Government of Sri Lanka has set up the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation committee and that committee in its report had called for investigations in some of the charges made. We have called for timely implementation of the LLRC report.
