‘Donors can assist through local organisations’- Thamilchelvan

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 27 January 2004, 10:39 GMT]
“During our visit, we will explain to European governments that the immediate humanitarian needs of our people require urgent attention. We will explain to them that the political impasse in Colombo should not delay this anymore. Therefore donor nations can disburse funds for urgent humanitarian needs through organisations here and through our own mechanisms”, said Mr. S. P Thamilchelvan, the head of the LTTE’s political division, speaking to the press in Kilinochchi before flying to Colombo on Tuesday for a visit to Europe.

Mr. Thamilchelvan will be visiting Norway, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy and Netherlands for discussions with the foreign ministries of those countries. He will spend more than two weeks in Europe, LTTE officials in Kilinochchi said.

“Our people are losing faith in the peace process. We do not believe that the international donor community would grant large-scale aid to Sri Lanka until the political impasse is overcome. Unless we attend to the pressing day-to-day problems of our people, they will start losing faith in the peace process. ”, Mr. Thamilchelvan said.
