[TamilNet, Saturday, 25 June 2005, 12:15 GMT]
Welcoming the aid deal between the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), the European Union (EU) confirmed on Saturday its readiness to assist the parties in setting up the post-tsunami joint administrative structure and to make it work. The European Union also reiterated its pledge to commit substantial contribution to the Trust Fund set up for financing projects selected for implementation by the three tiered adminstrative committee.

Declaration by the Presidency on behalf of the European Union on the agreement on a post-tsunami operations management structure (P-TOMS) in Sri Lanka

The European Union welcomes the agreement on a Post-Tsunami Operations Management Structure (P-TOMS) which has just been signed and congratulates the President of Sri Lanka, her government and the LTTE for the very positive and constructive step. This structure will greatly facilitate post-tsunami reconstruction in the North and East of Sri Lanka. The European Union is particularly pleased that it will involve all stakeholders, in particular the Muslim community. Co-operation in the framework of P-TOMS will also help to build confidence between parties to the Sri Lankan peace process.

The European Union urges all parties to ensure that the P-TOMS becomes operational as soon as possible, so that the urgent needs of all the tsunami victims can be addressed without further delay.

The European Union confirms its readiness to assist all the parties in setting up the structure and making it work. The European Union reiterates its pledge to commit substantial funds to the Trust Fund whose objective is to finance projects decided by the P-TOMS, once the structure has been established.
