TNA to coordinate with LTTE offices

[TamilNet, Sunday, 04 August 2002, 21:51 GMT]
The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) said Sunday that it would exert pressure on the United National Front (UNF) government to fully implement the ceasefire agreement with the Liberation Tigers. "We will inform foreign envoys in Colombo the urgent need for the full implementation of the Ceasefire Agreement by the UNF government," TNA parliamentarians told reporters.

On Saturday fifteen TNA parliamentarians met with Mr. S. P. Tamilselvan, head of the LiberationTigers’ political section. The four-hour discussion, which started at 5pm, took place at the LTTE’s political headquarters at Killinochchi

Mr. Thamilselvan was accompanied by Mr. V. Thangan, Administrative head of the political section and heads of LTTE's political sections in Jaffna, Mannar and Vavuniya Messrs Ilamparithi, Amuthab and Melavan respectively.

TNA MPs said that if the government fails to implement the Ceasefire Agreement fully, then the TNA would launch a people's agitation in the northeast province in support of its stance.

It was agreed at the discussion that in future all TNA parliamentarians would work in collaboration with the LTTE district political heads. LTTE and TNA will work jointly for the development of each district in the northeast province, TNA sources said.

The support of the Muslims will be enlisted to solve the question of resettling the displaced in Valigamam north and Thenmaradchchi area and to obtain the release of Tamil political prisoners now being detained at several prisons without being brought to trial, it was decided at the discussion, TNA sources said.

"The LTTE and TNA will jointly exert pressure on the government to implement the truce fully," said Vavuniya district parliamentarian Sivasakthi Anandan.

Batticaloa district MP Mr. V. Krishnapillai said that the LTTE is of opinion that no room should be given to start war anew. “Peace should continue," Mr. Sivasakthi Anandan said.
