LTTE delegation in Dublin: Thamilchelvan meets Irish Minister Conor Lenihan

[TamilNet, Thursday, 14 April 2005, 23:24 GMT]
Lack of consensus in Colombo, even in sharing resources to meet a natural disaster, has confounded the already existing humanitarian crisis, Mr. S.P. Thamilchelvan told Mr. Conor Lenihan T.D, Minister of State in Ireland with Special Responsibility for Overseas Development & Human Rights. Colombo is yet to respond to the Joint Mechanism proposals.

The LTTE's meeting with Minister Lenihan took place at the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin on Thursday.

Mr. Thamilchelvan further said that the Joint Mechanism proposal, accepted by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), contains the required elements for the custodianship of the Joint Fund with international community and the procedural elements to ensure transparency and accountability in accordance with the international norms and accepted principles.

LTTE has shown flexibility with the intention of building mutual confidence and has opted to identify a "thread of hope in the midst of adversity," LTTE sources said Mr. Thamilchelvan as saying to the Irish Minister.

Mr. Thamilchelvan invited the Minister to send a fact-finding mission to the tsunami affected Tamil region to assess the ground situation, the LTTE sources added.
