[TamilNet, Wednesday, 16 July 2003, 19:42 GMT]
The Norwegian head of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission, Major General (retd.) Triggve Teleffsen, who on Wednesday held key talks with the head of the Sea Tigers division of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, Colonel Soosai, in Mullaitivu, and concluded his three-day visit to the LTTE held Vanni region, told journalists that the SLMM’s Sea Monitors would visit Kilinochchi next week and hold talks with the Sea Tiger head, sources said.

The SLMM head, who returned to Colombo on Wednesday evening, said that more Sea Monitors would be appointed to ensure no more ceasefire violation occurred in the sea. He also visited the coastal areas of Mullaitivu and witnessed the suffering of fisher folk, sources said.

During his meeting with the SLMM head, Colonel Soosai told him to see that attack on LTTE vessels in the international waters is not repeated in the future, sources said.

Vanni sources said that Major General Teleffsen inspected some boats of the Sea Tiger Unit in Mullaitivu.
