[TamilNet, Monday, 15 December 2003, 16:51 GMT]
Members of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam led by Batticaloa-Amparai district Head of Political section, E.Kausalyan, met with a delegation from Sri Lanka's Special Task Force (STF) led by Senior Police Officer Upul Seneviratne in Akkaraipattu, in Amparai district Monday between 10am and 12noon, security sources in Amparai said.

The LTTE delegation requested the STF officers to remove the STF camps currently functioning in Thirkovil Hospital and Kanjirankuda, sources said.

Agreeing to this request, the STF delegation informed the LTTE that the camp in the Thirukovil Hospital will be removed soon and that Kanjirankuda camp will be relocated to another location as soon as the work on building the new camp is completed.

LTTE delegation expressed its appreciation for the co-operation extended by the STF personnel during the recently held Heroes' day events in Amparai, sources said.

Although the LTTE delegation expressed regret that the muslim community in Amparai district still does not trust the LTTE, the delegation said that LTTE continues to show concern over the plight of muslims and believe that the difficulties between the two communities can be resolved.

Mentioning that the muslim community is not at fault, the LTTE delegation expressed that the blame falls on external nefarious elements that are attempting to cause split between the two communities. The delegation added that the STF should co-operate with the LTTE to take actions that will bring harmony between the communities. STF delegations assured their co-operation.
