"Political instability blocks furtherance of peace talks"-Peiris

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 25 November 2003, 21:19 GMT]
The political instability in the south of the country has been considered by the local and international community as the main obstacle to take the peace process forward, the United National Front government senior minister and media spokesman, Professor G.L.Peiris, said Tuesday.

"The take over of three key ministries-- defense, interior and mass communication--from the UNF government by the President has hindered the continuation of the peace process the present government had launched since it came to power," Minister Peiris told Colombo-based diplomats Monday, briefing them about the current political crisis, sources said.

Minister Peiris assured the diplomats that his government hoped to continue the current peace efforts. What was required now was not setting up of a national government thus ending sharing cabinet portfolios between the two major parties. The two major parties must join and work for the success of the stalled peace talks to resume and to reach its objective of finding permanent peace in the country, media sources quoted Mr. Peiris as telling the diplomats.
