Mr. Thamilchelvan said that there have been "baseless criticisms and malicious propaganda against the ISGA proposals and the Tamil nationhood" recently in the south and noted that he was satisfied with the outcome of the discussions he held with the TNA parliamentarians. "The LTTE would intensify our efforts to clarify and address ISGA issues at all levels including the International Community", he told the press.

Mr. Sampanthan told reporters that the action groups would work among all sections of people, including the Muslim Community, Tamil Community in up-country, the Sinhala Community and importantly among the International Community.
