The Ambassador was on a two-day visit to Ki'linochchi Wednesday and Thursday, according to LTTE's Peace Secretariat officials.

The Co-chairs have failed to give attention to key issues affecting the Tamil people, including, continued closure of A9 highway, the only landroute to Jaffna peninsula, the resettlement of tens of thousands of internally dispalced refugees in the East, and the establishment of a new High Security Zones designed to evict Tamils from their traditional areas in Trincomalee, Thamilchelvan is reported to have told Mr Brattskar.
