Both Minister Silva and lawyer H.L. de Silva told the press that they have put forward amendments to the CeaseFire Agreements. However, LTTE's Chief Negotiator and Political Strategist, Anton Balasingham, had told the media that the Sri Lanka Government has "accepted the meaning and content of the Cease Fire Agreement in full."

The meaningful implementation of the ceasefire agreement is needed at this stage to further strength the goodwill, Mr.Nimal Sripala Silva said.
