Prime Minister John Key is currently in Sri Lanka taking part in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).
Mr Key arrived in Sri Lanka last week and met British Prime Minister David Cameron and Australia’s Tony Abbott.
This year the prime ministers of Canada and India are boycotting this year’s event because of Sri Lanka’s human rights record following its recent civil war.
A civil war is a war within the same country.
The Sri Lankan government rejects claims of war crimes and human rights abuses.
