Canadian Envoy meets Thamilselvan

[TamilNet, Thursday, 03 July 2003, 14:03 GMT]
The Canadian High-commissioner for Sri Lanka, Ms. Valerie Raymond, visited Kilinochchi Thursday and held discussions with S.P.Thamilselvan, the head of the LTTE’s political division, at the LTTE’s peace secretariat, sources in the Vanni said.

Speaking to the press after the meeting, the Canadian envoy said that the meeting, which lasted from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm, was useful and constructive.

Sources said that the meeting focused on the current status of peace talks and the political situation in the country, and the Canadian High-commissioner told Mr. Thamilselvan of the importance of taking forward the peace process.

Mr. Thamilselvan indicated to the envoy that the LTTE’s leadership continues to believe firmly that a solution to the ethnic conflict can be found only through talks. The LTTE is ready to restart the talks if the Sri Lankan government provides the draft for an interim administrative structure with adequate powers for rehabilitation and development of the North-East, the Vanni sources said.

Mr. James Shultz, an Officer of the Canadian Highcommission, and Mr. James Williams, a senior officer of the Canadian International Development Agency, were associated with the Canadian Highcommissioner at the meeting.

Mr. Pulithevan, the head of the LTTE’s peace secretariat, also attended the meeting with Mr. Thamilselvan.
