"The present form of the cease-fire agreement has number of shortcomings which can endanger the security of Muslims and Sinhalese in the east," Ms Ferial Ashraff, Amparai district parliamentarian and the leader of the NUA at a press conference held Friday.

Several opposition leaders addressed the press conference held at the office of the Leader of the Opposition.

Ms Ferial Ashraff said that the cease-fire agrement has failed to demarcate the boundaries of the State controlled areas and LTTE controlled areas in the Northeast province, clearly. This has resulted in creating confusion in the minds of the people of the province and members of the security forces.

"The cease-fire now in force is one sided. It should revised in such a way to provide justice to Muslims and Sinhalese in the east," said Ms Ferial Ashraff.
