Sri Lanka government making strides…

…in releasing, treating, rehabilitating former child soldiers in their country.  United Nations Under-Secretary for Children in Armed Conflict Radhika Coomaraswamy met with Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama late last week.  She noted that… 

…progressive developments have taken place in Sri Lanka in relation to children, including the release of child soldiers, re-integration of children back to their communities and the setting up of rehabilitation centres for them.

And specifically on how they are handling the problem of disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) in Sri Lanka, the Foreign Minister said:

…several programmes have already been implemented [throughout the country] to ensure the protection and well being of children.
