Sri Lankan Minister proposes an alternate UN

Apr 29, Colombo: Sri Lanka Minister of Housing and Construction and the leader of government coalition party National Freedom Front, Wimal Weerawansa says that the President Mahinda Rajapaksa can suggest the need of an alternate United Nations Organization.

Addressing a press conference of his party in capital Colombo yesterday, the Minister said the UN had become a cat’s paw of the Western super powers.

He also charged that the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon is working for the interests of the Western imperialists to secure a second term election to the office.

While working for defeating the attempts of the UN Secretary-General against Sri Lanka, Minister Wimal Weerawansa highlighted the need for taking action internationally to establish an alternate UN.

Weerawansa, a former Marxist who broke away from Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), launched a fast unto death last year in front of the Colombo office of UN against the Expert Panel established to advise the UN Secretary-General. He stopped the fast when President Rajapaksa intervened three days later.
