Jaffna Bishop urges govt. to recommence talks with LTTE

[TamilNet, Saturday, 28 August 2004, 17:52 GMT]
Jaffna Bishop Rt.Rev. Thomas Soundaranayagam Saturday appealed to the Sri Lanka government to engage in confidence building with the LTTE without delay and to take forward the peace process with sincerity on the basis of the Interim Self Governing Authority (ISGA) proposal submitted by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), sources in Jaffna said.

"It is high time the present government abandons its alliance with the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) which is considered a racist party. The JVP will never allow any fair and just political solution to the Tamil national question. The government should realize this," Bishop Thomas Soundaranayagam to the Tamilnet correspondent.

Chauvanist elements in the south are conducting false propaganda stating that the ISGA will pave way for the division of the country. The LTTE should take counter measures to defeat such false propaganda in the south, said Bishop Soundaranayagam.
