Bloodbath will not resolve the conflict: Pathmanathan

[TamilNet, Friday, 15 May 2009, 21:16 GMT]
"Colombo's approach to finish the war in 48 hours through a carnage and bloodbath of civilians will never resolve a conflict of decades. On the contrary it will only escalate the crisis to unforeseen heights. The Sinhala people have a duty and responsibility in stopping it, considering their own interest if not that of the Tamils," said LTTE's Head of International Relations, Selvarasa Pathmanathan, when contacted by TamilNet on the situation prevailing in Vanni.

Stating that he received latest information from Vanni that an uncountable number of civilians have been killed and wounded struggling without medical help, Mr. Pathmanathan said the Colombo government was carrying out its genocide unchecked by any of the rulers of the without making any differentiation between combatants and civilians.

He further said:

"The fact that Tamil people in the island could not even able to come out with any protesting voice show the extent of oppression they are facing at the moment, and will face in the future if the government is not stooped.

"But we hope the Sinhala civilians are in a better position of freedom to express their opinion.

"The Sinhala people have a duty and responsibility in stopping it, considering their own interest if not that of the Tamils. The Sinhala people should not forget that we are always going to be neighbours in the island.

"The LTTE, on several occasions, has reiterated its commitment for a ceasefire and the need to commence negotiations to resolve the crises, peacefully. But, the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, has shut down the doors on each and every occasion."
