[TamilNet, Wednesday, 07 December 2005, 18:20 GMT]
Mr.Hagrup Haukland, Head of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM), Wednesday 2 p.m. held a two hour discussion with Mr.S.Elilan, Trincomalee district head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), at the LTTE political secretariat located in Sampoor in LTTE held Muttur east.

The discussion centered on recent developments in Jaffna district, Karuna group activities and violent incidents in Muttur, sources said.

Mr.Elilan told SLMM head that the chauvinist groups, which are supporting the Colombo government, are continuing their opposition to any reasonable political solution to the Tamil national question. Hence Tamils have lost confidence on the present government's ability take the peace process forward to find a solution, Mr.Elilan told Mr.Haukland, sources said.

Regarding Karuna group, Mr.Elilan said it is the responsibility of the government of Sri Lanka to stop the activities of paramilitary Karuna group which is supported and given protection by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in its controlled areas.

The new commander of the SLA had accepted that Karuna group is responsible for the problems in the east. SLA has not taken any steps against Karuna group for any of its violence in the army-controlled areas, sources said.

Mr.Elilan said some elements are behind the violent incidence in Muttur to disrupt the cordial relationship between the Muslim and Tamil communities.
