"The Peacebuilding Commission calls to the international community for urgent and collective support and reaffirms its commitment to stand together in support of peacebuilding and sustaining peace efforts in Sri Lanka," the statement said.
According to the statement, the terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka took place a few days after its government presented before the UN commission Colombo’s progress in enhancing peacebuilding and transitional justice.
The commission condemned the attacks and offered its condolences to the families of bombings victims.
Sri Lanka launched a criminal investigation immediately after the attacks and has so far arrested 40 suspects.
Earlier on Tuesday, Daesh reportedly claimed responsibility for the attacks.
*Daesh (also known as ISIS/ISIL/IS) is a terrorist group banned in Russia and many other countries.
