The meeting lasted for more than an hour.

Matters related to violent incidents in different parts of NorthEast, possible risk to the CeaseFire Agreement (CFA) and the peace process were discussed at the meeting, the LTTE peace secretariat website reported. "

Thamilchelvan clarified matters relating to the Tamil national leader's Martyrs' Day address in the context of the leader's reference to 'political void' and reiterated that the LTTE is fully committed to the CFA and is only waiting for the government's response to recommence negotiations on the basis of the ISGA, the negative views from the south notwithstanding," said the website.

Mr. Hans Brattskar talking to reporters after the meeting said that they talked about the current situation. "I expressed my concerns about the violence we have seen over the last few days and weeks, and urged everyone to show maximum restraint. Particular concern was about what has been happening in Trincomalee."

I was not here with any kind of message, this visit came on my initiative, and it was a regular discussion Mr. Brattskar said.
