UN has strong relationship with Govt - UNDP Rep

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Country Director for Sri Lanka Douglas Keh said the United Nations would continue its partnership with the Government by dedicating its services towards activities in Sri Lanka.

He said, the UN will stay in Sri Lanka as long as Sri Lanka needs its services. The UN has maintained a close partnership with the Sri Lanka Government.

Keh was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the two-day workshop for parliamentary journalists organised by the Equal Access to Justice Project of the UNDP in collaboration with the National Languages and Social Integration Ministry at Hotel Villa Ocean View, Wadduwa.

Keh said the UN works entirely based on partnerships.

The UN partnership with the Sri Lankan Government is very important. The UN is an inter-government organisation and not a non-governmental organisation. World governments numbering 192 have come together to make decisions with the UN since 1950. The government of Sri Lanka is a key UN member.

“We don’t have large amounts of cash or military power.

We have the power of ideas and share humanity with our member countries. The UN always brings together common values,” Keh said.
