Mr.Suresh Premachandran, the leader of the Eelam People's Revolutionary Liberation Front (EPRLF), and Mr.Sri Kantha, leader of the Tamil Eelam Liberation Organisation (TELO) told Peter Westmacott, Deputy Secretary, British Foreign Office that they totally reject the constitutional reform proposals to solve the ethnic conflict agreed upon by the Sri Lankan government and the United National Party when they met the British official Friday afternoon along with representatives of the Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF), People's Liberation Organisation of Tamil Eelam (PLOTE), the Eelam People's Democratic Party (EPDP), the All Ceylon Tamil Congress (ACTC).

The Secretary of the ACTC, Mr. Kumaraguruparan and TULF's politburo member, Mr. Murugesu Raviraj told Mr.Westmacott that it was paramount that the Liberation Tigers should have a role in any discussion or process to solve the ethnic conflict.

The leader of the EPDP, Douglas Devananda and leader of the PLOTE, Dharmalingam Sidarthan told Mr. Wetmacott that they too had found the principal aspects of the constitutional reform proposals formulated by the government and the opposition unacceptable and hence had asked for a tripartite meeting between the Tamil parties the government and the United National Party regarding those issues and other matters relating to the conflict.

The British official informed the Tamil parties whom he met today that he was in Sri Lanka to study the situation, particularly with regard to the conflict in the north and east and the peace process. Mr. Westmacott told them that many British politicians are keen to know about the ethnic conflict in the Sri Lanka because there are many Tamils living in the United Kingdom now.
