Nisha Desai Biswal, U.S. assistant secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs, gestures during a news conference in Colombo February 1, 2014. The United States will sponsor a resolution against Sri Lanka at UNHRC meeting in March to promote post-war reconciliation amid a frustrating human rights climate and weakening of the rule of law in the island nation, a top U.S. official said on Saturday. The final few months of the 26-year conflict were by far the bloodiest, and the government and Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) rebels blame each other for the deaths of tens of thousands of mainly Tamil civilians.
