SLA-LTTE officials meet in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 05 August 2005, 17:41 GMT]
An LTTE delegation led by Mr.C.Ilamparithi, Jaffna district political head and Major General Sunil Tennekoon, Jaffna area commander of SLA, met at 6.45pm for nearly two hours in the presence of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Jaffna SLMM offices. They discussed in detail the current ground situation in the district following Thursday incidents and to take steps to restore normalcy, SLMM sources said.

Other members of the SLA attending the discussions were Lt.Colonel Athula and Major Duminda, sources said.

Mr.Ilamparithi speaking to press persons after the discussion said he has requested the SLA officials to reduce the movement of armed soldiers in densely populated areas to prevent similar incidents in the future.

SLA delegation is reported to have expressed regret for the unfortunate incident and explored with LTTE representatives ways to maintaining peace when there are incidents that can create tension, sources said.

However, no one would be allowed to take the law into their own hands. Such action would adversely impact the peace process, SLA delegation had warned at the discussion, sources said.
