Resolving CFA issues focus of SLA, LTTE meet

[TamilNet, Friday, 23 May 2003, 19:48 GMT]
A high level meeting between the commanders of the Sri Lankan Government armed forces and the LTTE in the Trincomalee district has been fixed for May 28 at no man’s zone at Kattaiparichchan in the Mutur division, south of the eastern port town, to resolve existing logistical problems in the implementation of the Cease-Fire Agreement, sources said.

The Norwegian head of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM), retired Major General Triggve Teleffsen, is to preside over the meeting. The LTTE’s Trincomalee district commander, Colonel Pathuman, and his area commanders and heads of the Sri Lankan armed forces in the district will participate in the meeting, SLMM sources said.

This high level meeting was earlier fixed for April 21 following the discussion between the SLMM head and Colonel Pathuman held at Sampur in the LTTE held Mutur east on April 8. However, the meeting was not held as scheduled due to the violence that broke out between Tamils and Muslims in the Mutur division, sources said.

At the discussion last month, the LTTE wanted the SLMM to resolve the problem that confronts the organization's members in transporting food and medicine between areas held by them, through SLA controlled in the Trincomalee district, the sources said.
