Time for stock taking of truce - SLMM

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 25 August 2004, 08:05 GMT]
It is time for a 'stock taking' of the cease fire between the Liberation Tigers and the Government, of how it has fared since it was signed in February 2002, Head of the Nordic mission monitoring the truce in Sri Lanka, said when he met the LTTE in Kilinochchi Wednesday. LTTE would not resume meeting with the Sri Lankan armed forces in the east until the killings of their cadres in the region are stopped, Mr. S. P Thamilchelvan, head of Tigers' political division, told Major General (ret) Trond Furhovde, chief of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission.

Col. Soosai, Commander of the Sea Tigers, also took part in the meeting. He explained to Maj. Gen. Furhovde that the vessel sighted off Chalai, on the Mullaithivu coast, last week was only engaged in a naval exercise. The Sri Lanka navy complained to truce monitors that Sea Tigers had unloaded some boxes believed to contain weapons from the vessel.
