The second one was "establishment of a credible and independent international commission of investigation in a time bound manner into the allegations of war crimes.  The government on Monday had said that a decision on India’s stand on the US resolution on Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council will be taken only after a discussion with Mr M Karunanidhi.
