S.P. Thamilchelvan, the Political Head of the Liberation Tigers, before leaving Kilinochchi Tuesday morning, with Norwegian Ambassador Hans Brattskar and the LTTE delegation, for talks in Geneva, told media that the Tigers were participating in the talks respecting the call by the International Community. "Agenda for the talks has not been worked out," Mr. Thamilchelvan said. "However, on our part, we have prepared to focus the urgent humanitarian crisis caused by the Sri Lankan state terrorism in the Tamil homeland," he told media adding that the Tigers were also prepared to focus the implementation of the Ceasefire Agreement.

Norwegian Ambassador Hans Brattskar arrived in Kilinochchi in a Sri Lanka Air Force helicopter facilitating the travel arrangement of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam delegation to Colombo where Tiger delegation's secure stay has been arranged by the Co-Chairs, representing the International donor community, LTTE officials in Kilinochchi said.

A 13-member team comprising LTTE political head, Tamil Eelam Police Chief B. Nadesan, Director of LTTE's Peace Secretariat S. Puleedevan, Military Spokesman of the Tigers Irasiah Ilanthirayan and Deputy Head of Women's Political Wing Thamilvili departed Kilinochchi grounds in the SLAF helicopter around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday.

The Tigers have appointed a 6 member delegation, comprising the above mentioned five members and LTTE's Legal Advisor, Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran from the USA.

The talks in Geneva are scheduled to take place on 28 and 29 October. The LTTE delegation would also visit Norway after the talks in Geneva, LTTE officials said.
