Norwegian Foreign Minister, Jan Peterson, is expected to arrive in Colombo on Thursday for a meeting with the top LTTE leadership including Velupillai Pirapaharan, later in the week.
Norwegian peace envoys, Deputy Foreign Minister Vidar Helgesen and Special Advisor Erik Solheim are also expected to accompany Mr Peterson, according a Norwegian Embassy statement issued Thursday.
Due to harsh weather in Vanni and his delicate health condition, Balasingham will be staying in Kilinochchi for not more than a week before returning to his London residence, according to informed sources.
