Minister podjęła także temat poparcia ze strony lankijskiej dla kandydatury Polski do Rady IMO na lata 2020-2021. Ambasador odniósł się z dużą życzliwością do polskiej kandydatury i obiecał swoje wsparcie dla niej.



Rationalization of areas of cooperation of Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) and draft Charter of the organization were deliberated and a draft Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to be signed between the BIMSTEC Secretariat and the Asian Development Bank was agreed on during the 2nd meeting of the (BIMSTEC) Permanent Working Committee (BPWC) hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Colombo on 10 and 11 October 2019. The deliberations were attended by all BIMSTEC Member States namely, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand and the BIMSTEC Secretariat. The meeting was chaired by Mr P.M. Amza Additional Secretary, Economic Affairs Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In his opening remarks, Foreign Secretary Ravinatha Aryasinha emphasized the importance of individual and collective efforts of Member States in making BIMSTEC a more robust organization. He noted with concern that BIMSTEC which entered its third decade, is yet to reap benefits of the full socio-economic potential of the region – with intra- regional trade at only 3.7% and investment approximately 5%. He urged delegations to actively seek to understand what holds the organization back – imagination, resources or political will. As current BIMSTEC Chair, Sri Lanka saw as crucial in re-energizing the organization, the early finalization of the BIMSTEC Charter and the rationalization of the sectors in order to maximize utilization of resources and to make BIMSTEC a result oriented organization delivering tangible benefits to all its people. While extending his appreciation for the solidarity shown by member countries of BIMSTEC towards Sri Lanka in the aftermath of Easter attacks, he said Sri Lanka will forge closer cooperation, especially in the areas of counter terrorism and transnational crimes. He also emphasized the importance of BIMSTEC working closely with various international organizations such as the IORA, ASEAN and the ADB.

The Secretary General of BIMSTEC, Ambassador M Shahidul Islam, in his remarks, referring to the Leaders decisions at the 4th BIMSTEC Summit in Kathmandu in August 2018 pertaining to institutional reforms, reinvigorating sectoral activities through the rationalization of the areas of cooperation and a BIMSTEC Charter, emphasized the need to place before the Fifth BIMSTEC Summit to be held in Colombo some concrete outcome for endorsement, rather than presenting the status of work in progress. He said the BPWC is composed of senior level officials of Member States, who act as BIMSTEC National Focal Points in their respective capitals, and hence could produce the maximum.

Following the decision made at the 4th BIMSTEC Summit held in Kathmandu to expand the institutional capacity of BIMSTEC through financing and human resources, the BPWC further deliberated on the new tier of directors to be appointed to the Secretariat. Sri Lanka is also eligible to nominate a Director to the BIMSTEC Secretariat in June 2020. An updated draft template of the Memorandum of Association (MoA) on the Establishment of the BIMSTEC Centres/Entities, the draft calendar of activities/events-2020 and the Secretariat’s estimated budget for FY 2020, was also considered at the meeting. The meeting concluded with all Member States reaffirming their commitment towards achieving the objectives of BIMSTEC, which sets the spring board for the 3rd Meeting of the BPWC, scheduled to be held in January/February 2020.

The BIMSTEC Secretary General Ambassador Shahidul Islam also called on Foreign Secretary on the sidelines of the meeting and discussed modalities aimed at strengthening the institutional and operational framework of BIMSTEC.  Foreign Secretary Aryasinha assured the Secretary General that Sri Lanka was fully committed to help make BIMSTEC an imaginative robust organization that serves the aspirations of its people, rather than being pre-occupied with routine administrative details.

 பிம்ஸ்டெக் சாசனத்தின் கூட்டிணைக்கவேண்டிய அம்சங்களைச் சீரமைத்தல் மற்றும் பின்பற்றுதல் தொடர்பில் கொழும்பில் இடம்பெற்ற கூட்டம் அழுத்தம் கொடுத்தது

அக்டோபர் 10 மற்றும் 11 ஆந் திகதிகளில் வெளிநாட்டு அலுவல்கள் அமைச்சு கொழும்பில் நடாத்திய பிம்ஸ்டெக் நிரந்தர செயற்குழுவின் (BPWC) 2வது கூட்டத்தின் போது, வங்காள விரிகுடா பல்துறை தொழில்நுட்ப பொருளாதார கூட்டுறவிற்கான முன்னெடுப்பு (பிம்ஸ்டெக்) மற்றும் அமைப்பின் வரைவு சாசனம் ஆகியவற்றின் கூட்டுறவிற்கான அம்சங்கள் பகுப்பாய்வு செய்யப்பட்டு, பிம்ஸ்டெக் செயலகம் மற்றும் ஆசிய அபிவிருத்தி வங்கிக்கு இடையில் கைச்சாத்திடப்பட வேண்டிய புரிந்துணர்வு ஒப்பந்தம் ஏற்றுக்கொள்ளப்பட்டது. இந்த கலந்தாலோசனைகளில் பங்களாதேஷ், பூட்டான், இந்தியா, மியான்மார், நேபாளம், இலங்கை, தாய்லாந்து ஆகிய அனைத்து பிம்ஸ்டெக் உறுப்பு நாடுகளும் மற்றும் பிம்ஸ்டெக் செயலகமும் கலந்து கொண்டன. இந்த கூட்டத்திற்கு, வெளிநாட்டு அலுவல்கள் அமைச்சின் பொருளாதார விவகாரங்கள் பிரிவிற்கான மேலதிக செயலாளர் திரு. பி.எம். அம்ஸா தலைமை தாங்கினார்.

தனது தொடக்க உரையில், பிம்ஸ்டெக்கை மிகவும் வலுவான அமைப்பாக மாற்றுவதில் உறுப்பு நாடுகளின் தனிப்பட்ட மற்றும் கூட்டு முயற்சிகளின் முக்கியத்துவத்தை வெளிவிவகார செயலாளர் ரவிநாத ஆரியசிங்க வலியுறுத்தினார். தனது மூன்றாவது தசாப்தத்தில் நுழைந்துள்ள பிம்ஸ்டெக், 3.7% ஆன உள்ளக பிராந்திய வர்த்தகம் மற்றும் அண்ணளவாக 5% ஆன முதலீடு என்ற வகையில், பிராந்தியத்தின் முழுமையான சமூக – பொருளாதார ஆற்றலின் பலன்களை இன்னும் பெற்றுக்கொள்ளவில்லை என அவர் கவலையுடன் சுட்டிக்காட்டினார். கற்பனையாற்றல், வளங்கள் அல்லது அரசியல் விருப்பம் போன்றவற்றில் அமைப்பை மீளச் செய்யும் விடயங்கள் குறித்து புரிந்துகொள்வதற்கு பிரதிநிதிகள் செயற்பாட்டு ரீதியில் முயற்சித்தல் வேண்டும் என அவர் கேட்டுக்கொண்டார். தற்போதைய பிம்ஸ்டெக் தலைவர் என்ற வகையில், நிறுவனத்தை மீண்டும் உற்சாகப்படுத்துதல், பிம்ஸ்டெக் சாசனத்தை விரைவாக இறுதிப்படுத்துதல், வளங்களை அதிகபட்சமாக பயன்படுத்துவதற்காக துறைகளை பகுப்பாய்வு செய்தல் மற்றும் பிம்ஸ்டெக்கை அதன் அனைத்து மக்களுக்கும் உறுதியான நன்மைகளை வழங்கும் ஒரு முடிவு சார்ந்த அமைப்பாக மாற்றுதல் ஆகியன முக்கியமானவையாக இலங்கை கண்டறிந்தது. ஈஸ்டர் தாக்குதல்களுக்குப் பின்னர், பிம்ஸ்டெக்கின் உறுப்பு நாடுகள் இலங்கைக்கு காட்டிய ஒற்றுமைக்கு தனது பாராட்டுக்களைத் தெரிவித்த அதே வேளை, குறிப்பாக பயங்கரவாத எதிர்ப்பு மற்றும் நாடுகடந்த குற்றங்கள் போன்றவற்றில் இலங்கை நெருக்கமான ஒத்துழைப்பை நோக்கி முன்னேறிச் செல்லும் என தெரிவித்தார்.  IORA, ஆசியான் மற்றும் ADB போன்ற பல்வேறு சர்வதேச அமைப்புகளுடன் பிம்ஸ்டெக் நெருக்கமாக பணியாற்றுவதன் முக்கியத்துவத்தையும் அவர் வலியுறுத்தினார்.

நிறுவன சீர்திருத்தங்கள், ஒத்துழைப்பு மற்றும் பிம்ஸ்டெக் சாசனம் ஆகியவற்றின் பகுப்பாய்வின் மூலம் துறைசார் நடவடிக்கைகளை புதுப்பித்தல் ஆகியவற்றுடன் தொடர்பாக காத்மாண்டுவில் 2018 ஆகஸ்டில் நடைபெற்ற 4 வது பிம்ஸ்டெக் உச்சி மாநாட்டில் தலைவர்களால் மேற்கொள்ளப்பட்ட தீர்மானங்களை தனது உரையின் போது குறிப்பிட்ட பிம்ஸ்டெக்கின் செயலாளர் நாயகம் தூதுவர் எம் ஷாஹிதுல் இஸ்லாம், கொழும்பில் நடைபெறவுள்ள ஐந்தாவது பிம்ஸ்டெக் உச்சிமாநாட்டிற்கு முன்னர், நடைமுறையிலுள்ள பணிகளின் நிலைமையை வழங்குவதற்குப் புறம்பாக, ஒப்புதலுக்கான சில உறுதியான விளைவுகளை முன்வைக்க வேண்டியதன் அவசியம் குறித்து வலியுறுத்தினார். BPWC என்பது அந்தந்த தலைநகரங்களில் பிம்ஸ்டெக்கின் தேசிய குவியப் புள்ளிகளாக செயற்படும் உறுப்பு நாடுகளின் சிரேஷ்ட மட்ட அதிகாரிகளைக் கொண்டுள்ளமையினால், அதிகபட்சமானதை உருவாக்க முடியும் என அவர் தெரிவித்தார்.

நிதி மற்றும் மனித வளங்கள் மூலம் பிம்ஸ்டெக்கின் நிறுவன ரீதியான திறனை விரிவுபடுத்துவதற்காக காத்மாண்டுவில் நடைபெற்ற 4 வது பிம்ஸ்டெக் உச்சி மாநாட்டில் மேற்கொள்ளப்பட்ட தீர்மானத்தைத் தொடர்ந்து, செயலகத்திற்கு புதிய பணிப்பாளர்கள் நியமிக்கப்பட வேண்டும் என BPWC மேலும் ஆலோசித்தது. 2020 ஜூன் மாதம் பிம்ஸ்டெக் செயலகத்திற்கு பணிப்பாளர் ஒருவரை நியமிப்பதற்கு இலங்கையும் தகுதி பெற்றுள்ளது. பிம்ஸ்டெக் நிறுவனங்கள் / அமைப்புக்களை நிறுவுவது தொடர்பான சங்கத்தின் குறிப்பாணையின் புதுப்பிக்கப்பட்ட வரைவு வார்ப்புரு, நடவடிக்கைகள் / நிகழ்வுகளின் வரைவு நாட்காட்டி – 2020 மற்றும் 2020 ஆம் நிதியாண்டிற்கான செயலகத்தின் மதிப்பிடப்பட்ட பாதீடு ஆகியன தொடர்பிலும் இந்தக் கூட்டத்தின் போது கவனம் செலுத்தப்பட்டது. 2020 ஜனவரி / பெப்ரவரி மாதங்களில் நடைபெறவிருக்கும் BPWC இன் 3 வது கூட்டத்திற்கான அடித்தளங்களை அமைக்கும் பிம்ஸ்டெக்கின் நோக்கங்களை அடைவதற்கான உறுதிப்பாட்டை அனைத்து உறுப்பு நாடுகளும் உறுதிப்படுத்தியதன் மூலம் கூட்டம் நிறைவடைந்தது.

பிம்ஸ்டெக்கின் செயலாளர் நாயகம் தூதுவர் ஷாஹிதுல் இஸ்லாம் கூட்டத்தின் பக்க நிகழ்வுகளில் வெளிவிவகார செயலாளரை சந்தித்து, பிம்ஸ்டெக்கின் நிறுவன மற்றும் செயற்பாட்டுக் கட்டமைப்பை வலுப்படுத்துவதை நோக்காகக் கொண்ட முறைகள் குறித்து கலந்துரையாடினார். வழக்கமான நிர்வாக விவரங்களுடன் முன்கூட்டியே ஆக்கிரமிக்கப்படுவதை விட, பிம்ஸ்டெக்கை அதன் மக்களின் அபிலாஷைகளுக்கு சேவை செய்யும் கற்பனை வலுவான அமைப்பாக மாற்றுவதற்காக இலங்கை முழுமையாக ஈடுபடும் என வெளிவிவகார செயலாளர் ஆரியசிங்க செயலாளர் நாயகத்துக்கு உறுதியளித்தார்.

Foreign Secretary Ravinatha Aryasinha who is presently leading the Sri Lanka delegation to the 74th Session of the UN General Assembly, met with Mr. Vladimir Voronkov, Under-Secretary-General, Office of Counter-Terrorism (OCT) and his team and Ms. Michéle Coninsx, Assistant-Secretary-General (ASG) and Executive Director of the Counter- Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED) on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly this week. Ambassador Kshenuka Senewiratne, Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka to the United Nations, and other senior officials were associated with the Foreign Secretary.

The Secretary thanked the UN and the international community who unreservedly condemned the Easter Sunday attacks, and for supporting the Government in numerous ways. He particularly noted that the recent visit undertaken by the ASG and Executive Director of the CTED, Ms. Michéle Coninsx had provided an opportunity to draw on international best practices in consolidating domestic efforts in countering terrorism and violent extremism among the relevant stakeholders.

The Foreign Secretary briefed Mr. Voronkov on recent visits undertaken by several Ministers and counter terrorism Coordinators – from the UK, EU, the US, and Australia, as well as an expert from the Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF). Following the latter visit, the areas identified for immediate attention included community policing, youth engagement for social cohesion, monitoring social media, activities targeting vulnerable community hotspots and deradicalization.

Under-Secretary-General Voronkov noted work done to strengthen border management, implementation of the Advance Passenger Information (API) and Passenger Name Records (PNR). In this regard, he expressed the readiness of the UN to provide further assistance to Sri Lanka in future endeavours in integrating with the API/PNR system and in countering violent extremism. He assured that his office will coordinate with the GoSL on the priorities, during an upcoming visit to Sri Lanka.

ASG Coninsx welcomed the close engagement and the high level of cooperation between CTED and Sri Lanka. Ms. Coninsx said that the UN is developing a framework for cooperation with Sri Lanka. This will include measures to be taken that would help Sri Lanka to be compliant with international counter terrorism obligations under relevant Security Council Resolutions on returning foreign terrorist fighters and countering violent extremism, as well as border security.

Secretary Aryasinha said Sri Lanka was adopting a whole-of-Government approach in addressing the areas of concern and that it was important that programmes of assistance are tangible and can be integrated within Sri Lanka’s plans. In this regard, the ASG and the Foreign Secretary agreed on the need for both GoSL and the UN to work together to identify tangible actions which will serve the interest of the country.

The United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT) was established through the adoption of General Assembly resolution 71/291 on 15 June 2017, to enhance coordination and coherence across the 38 Global Counter-Terrorism Coordination Compact (former CTITF) Task Force, to strengthen counter-terrorism capacity-building assistance to Member States, and to improve visibility, advocacy and resource mobilization for United Nations counter-terrorism efforts.

The CTED was established by the UN Security Council as a special political mission to assist the UN Security Council’s Counter –Terrorism Committee (CTC), and is tasked with carrying out the policy decisions of the CTC, conduct expert assessments of Member States and facilitate counter-terrorism technical assistance to countries.

21/4க்குப் பின்னர் இலங்கையில் இயல்பு நிலைமையை மீட்டெடுப்பதற்கு உறுதியான உதவி தேவை என இலங்கை கூறுகின்றது

ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் பொதுச் சபையின் பக்க நிகழ்வுகளில் ஒன்றாக, ஐ.நா பொதுச் சபையின் 74வது அமர்வுக்கான இலங்கைத் தூதுக்குழுவிற்கு தற்போது தலைமை தாங்கி வரும் வெளிவிவகார செயலாளர் ரவிநாத ஆரியசிங்க அவர்கள், பயங்கரவாத தடுப்பு அலுவலகத்தின் கீழ்நிலைச் செயலாளர் நாயகம் திரு. விலாடிமிர் வொரொன்கொவ் மற்றும் அவரது குழுவினரையும், பயங்கரவாத தடுப்புக் குழுவின் உதவிச் செயலாளர் நாயகமும், நிறைவேற்றுப் பணிப்பாளருமான திருமதி. மிச்சேல் கொனிங்ஸ்க் ஆகியோரை இந்த வாரம் சந்தித்தார். ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபைக்கான இலங்கையின் நிரந்தர பிரதிநிதி தூதுவர் ஷெனுகா செனவிரத்ன மற்றும் ஏனைய சிரேஷ்ட உத்தியோகத்தர்கள் வெளிவிவகார செயலாளருடன் இதன் போது இணைந்திருந்தனர்.

ஈஸ்டர் ஞாயிறு தாக்குதல்கள் குறித்து தயக்கமின்றி கண்டனங்களைத் தெரிவித்தமைக்காகவும், பல வழிகளிலும் அரசாங்கத்தை ஆதரித்தமைக்காகவும் ஐ.நா. மற்றும் சர்வதேச சமூகத்திற்கும் செயலாளர் நன்றிகளைத் தெரிவித்தார். பயங்கரவாத தடுப்புக் குழுவின் உதவிச் செயலாளர் நாயகமும், நிறைவேற்றுப் பணிப்பாளருமான திருமதி. மிச்சேல் கொனிங்ஸ்க் மேற்கொண்ட சமீபத்திய விஜயமானது, தொடர்புடைய பங்குதாரர்களுக்கு மத்தியில், பயங்கரவாதம் மற்றும் வன்முறைத் தீவிரவாதத்தை எதிர்கொள்வதில் உள்நாட்டு முயற்சிகளை ஒருங்கிணைப்பதில் சிறந்த நடைமுறைகளைப் பெறுவதற்கான வாய்ப்பை வழங்கியுள்ளது என அவர் விஷேடமாக சுட்டிக்காட்டினார்.

ஐக்கிய இராச்சியம், ஐரோப்பிய ஒன்றியம், ஐக்கிய அமெரிக்கா மற்றும் அவுஸ்திரேலியா போன்ற நாடுகளிலிருந்து பல அமைச்சர்கள் மற்றும் பயங்கரவாத எதிர்ப்பு ஒருங்கிணைப்பாளர்கள், மேலும் உலகளாவிய சமூக ஈடுபாடு மற்றும் விரிவாற்றல் நிதியத்தின் நிபுணர் ஒருவர் மேற்கொண்ட விஜயங்கள் குறித்து வெளிவிவகார செயலாளர் திரு. வொரோன்கோவ்விற்கு விளக்கினார். நிபுணரின் விஜயத்தைத் தொடர்ந்து, உடனடியாக கவனம் செலுத்துவதற்காக அடையாளம் காணப்பட்ட பகுதிகள், சமூக கொள்கையாக்கம், சமூக ஒருமைப்பாட்டுக்கான இளைஞர்களின் ஈடுபாடு, சமூக ஊடகங்களை கண்காணித்தல், பாதிக்கப்படக்கூடிய சமூக இடங்களை குறிவைக்கும் நடவடிக்கைகள் மற்றும் மிதவாதமயமாக்கல் ஆகியவற்றை உள்ளடக்கியிருந்தன.
