Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa Friday said he is "uncomfortable" with the US-led resolution to be presented at the UN Human Rights Council and believes there should be no resolution at all. The Sri Lankan government faces a US-led resolution before the UNHRC next month for failing to implement adequate reconciliation measures and investigate allegations of war crimes. The resolution, the third consecutive one faced by the government, insists that Sri Lanka's human rights record has failed to improve since the conflict between the government and the Liberation Tamil Tigers of Eelam ended in 2009.
