Norwegian Special Representative Furuhovde to visit Sri Lanka

[TamilNet, Friday, 07 October 2005, 04:04 GMT]
Major General (ret'd) Trond Furuhovde, former head of Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission, will visit Sri Lanka on Monday as a Special Reprsentative of the Norwegian Government to consult with the parties. As a meeting between the Government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to discuss the implementation of the Ceasefire Agreement is not likely to occur in the near future, the visit of the Special Representative would provide an opportunity for both parties to propose measures for strengthening the implementation of the agreement, a press release issued by the Norwegian Embassy in Colombo said Friday.

Full text of the press release, issued by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Colombo, follows:

Visit of Major General (ret’d) Trond Furuhovde

Major General (ret’d) Trond Furuhovde, former head of mission of Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission, will visit Sri Lanka from 10 to 18 October as a Special Representative of the Royal Norwegian Government. Furuhovde will consult with representatives of both the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), seeking their views on the status of the security situation and the implementation of the Ceasefire Agreement. Furuhovde will also meet with representatives of the Muslim Peace Secretariat and the Tokyo Co-chairs.

As a meeting between the GOSL and the LTTE to discuss the implementation of the Ceasefire Agreement is not likely to occur in the near future, the visit is an opportunity for both parties to propose measures for strengthening the implementation of the agreement.
