TIC urges Colombo to reciprocate LTTE's ceasefire

[TamilNet, Sunday, 27 July 2008, 19:55 GMT]
In a press release issued Sunday, Tamil Information Center (TIC), a UK-based peace advocacy organization, urged Sri Lankan Government "to view the LTTE’s ceasfire offer as positive, and reciprocate it by making a similar announcement giving rise to a real ceasefire leading to an end to the armed conflict and the beginning of confidence building between the parties, peace talks and agreement on substantive issues that lie at the heart of the conflict."

The release also called the international community to "continue to exert pressure on both the Sri Lankan government and the LTTE to end the war immediately and begin talks aimed at a comprehensive settlement to the conflict."

TIC also appealed to the "civil society groups and organisations to actively continue their efforts to bring the parties to the conflict to the negotiating table, without further delay," and urged the "community organisations and interest groups based outside Sri Lanka to urgently call upon the Sri Lankan government, the LTTE and the international community to explore all peaceful means possible in order to bring the conflict to an end."
