Peace process in great crisis- Thamilchelvan

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 13 July 2004, 11:12 GMT]
"The peace process is in great crisis. The Sri Lankan government should take constructive steps to stabilize the cease fire. But a cabinet minister in the government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) is openly aiding 'Karuna' to attack us. The manner in which the GOSL and its armed forces are backing Karuna is jeopardising peace," said Mr. S.P Thamilchelvan, speaking to the press after meeting Norway's ambassador to Sri Lanka Tuesday in Kilinochchi.

He said that the cease fire agreement (CFA) should be implemented properly before talks with Colombo restart.

Referring to the clause in the CFA which obligates Colombo to disarm paramilitaries and to move them out of the northeast, he said: "The Sri Lankan government is undermining the CFA by arming and deploying Karuna and his henchmen against us".
