Sri Lanka's new unity government is planning a range of measures to ensure reconciliation after decades of war, including creating an office for war reparations and a truth commission, Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera said Monday.

"The government of Sri Lanka recognises fully that the process of reconciliation involves addressing the broad areas of truth seeking, justice, reparations and non-recurrence," Samaraweera told the United Nations Human Rights Council.

The council will on Wednesday release a long-awaited report on Sri Lanka's alleged war crimes during its brutal separatist war against the Tamil Tiger guerillas in which at least 100,000 people died.
