Vavuniya Government Agent K.Ganesh also attended the discussions.

Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and LTTE representatives, during their discussions, expressed their willingness to expedite procedures necessary to resettle the displaced in different areas in the district. They also agreed to allow others, who cannot be resettled in their former lands, to inspect their homes and to assist them in resuming cultivation in their fields, sources said.
