Canada will urge SL to propose solution to ethnic issue

[TamilNet, Friday, 15 October 2010, 06:24 GMT]
Canada Deputy Ambassador in Sri Lanka, Mr. Tred Jacques, who is on a visit to Jaffna told the representatives of the Jaffna district Committee for Peace and Goodwill (CPG) that Canada will continue to urge Sri Lanka government to forward a solution to the ethnic issue when he met them at Jaffna Bishop House. Rt. Rev. Thomas Saundaranayagam, Bishop of Jaffna presided over the meeting with the visiting emissary, sources in Jaffna said. Meanwhile, a delegation of the Inter Religious Assembly for Peace (IRAP) from South consisting Buddhist priests inaugurated a branch of IRAP in Thiruma’rai Kalaamant’ram Hall in Jaffna Thursday in an event presided by Prof. Pon. Balasundarampillai, former Vice-chancellor of Jaffna University. More than a hundred Buddhist priests participated in the inauguration.

Religious organizations and the people in Jaffna peninsula, however, did show interest in the event, the sources added.

Meanwhile, CPG representatives appealed the Deputy Ambassador to consider the appeals of Eelam Tamils uprooted by war seeking refuge in Canada favourably, in the meeting.

The Canadian Deputy Ambassador’s visit to Jaffna is seen as a move related to the issue of uprooted Eelam Tamils who have sought refuge in Canada recently, the representatives said.

Meanwhile, on 08 October CPG representatives had said that Sri Lanka government has abandoned all its efforts to find a solution for the ethnic issue and that the Indian government maintains silence over the issue, when the Indian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka, Mr. Ashok K. Kantha met the CPG at the Bishop House in Jaffna.
