Sri Lanka's Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva says, Sri Lanka has never shied away from taking its fair share of responsibility in the UN system

Sri Lanka's Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva Ambassador Ravinatha Aryasinha has said, over the 70 years since Independence, Sri Lanka has never shied away from taking its fair share of responsibility in the UN system. This system has helped Sri Lanka build an image as a moderate, and progressive partner, able to bridge differences and build consensus. He said, in Geneva, Sri Lanka continues to give leadership on a wide range of issues such as disarmament, migration, human rights, health, intellectual property, science and technology and international trade policy.
Ambassador Aryasinha made these observations at a ceremony held to celebrate Sri Lanka's 70th Anniversary of Independence, at the World Intellectual Property Organization .
