[TamilNet, Friday, 07 November 2003, 10:16 GMT]
Sri Lanka's Prime Minister Mr.Ranil Wickremasinghe said Friday that the continuation of peace process should receive priority attention. " I would meet all the political parties soon to take forward the peace process," he told journalists on his arrival in Colombo, media sources said

"Peace is at risk due to the President's undemocratic action. I still command majority in parliament and would take appropriate steps in a day or two to consolidate my position and to bring a complete change in the present political situation which followed by the dismissal of three of my ministers and suspension of parliament," said Mr.Wickremasinghe, according to media sources.

Thousands of people gathered both sides of the 24 km route from Katunayake to Colombo to receive the Prime Minister who began his journey around 8.30 from the airport. About three thousand Police personnel have been deployed along the route in addition to Special task Force police personnel to ensure security, police said.

Mr.Wickremasinghe said that his government had worked for two years to bring the country to normalcy. But the President's undemocratic action in two days has brought the country back to the dark era.

"My first aim is to find a solution to the present political crisis and to bring a complete change in the present atmosphere," stressed Mr. Wickremasinghe.
