TNA briefs foreign envoys on NE interim administration

[TamilNet, Thursday, 22 May 2003, 15:57 GMT]
A delegation of the Tamil National Alliance Thursday told the American Ambassador for Sri Lanka Mr.Ashely Wills the urgency in setting up of an interim administration to rebuild the war ravaged northeast province and to rehabilitate the displaced families in their villages, TNA sources said.

The TNA appealed to the US Ambassador to exert pressure on the United National Front government to establish the interim administrative structure as requested by the LTTE leadership, the sources said.

Normalcy would return to the northeast if an interim administration with adequate administrative, financial powers were established, TNA delegation by its parliamentary group leader Mr.R.Sampanthan told the US envoy.

TNA delegation comprised parliamentarians Mr. Joseph Pararajasingham, Mr.N.Raviraj and Mr.G.G. Gajendrakumar, the sources said.

The TNA delegation Wednesday met the Prime Minister Mr.Ranil Wickremasinghe and briefed him about the outcome of the talks it had with the LTTE leadership in Killinochchi on Tuesday. Later it met the envoys of Norway and Japan.

The TNA is to meet the High Commissioner of United Kingdom in Sri Lanka Friday to solicit his support for the interim administration proposal, a TNA spokesman told TamilNet.
