The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Sunday expressed shock and consternation on the killing of Mr.Lakshman Kadirgamar, Sri Lanka's Foreign Minister. "We urge that the peace process be recommenced in a meaningful way. That would be the only way to sustain the Ceasefire Agreement and discourage all forms of violence," said the TNA in its press release.

The full text of the press release follows: -

Press release issued by the Tamil National Alliance on the killing of Mr. Lakshman Kadirgamar, M.P., P.C., Minister of Foreign Affairs:

"The killing of Hon.Lakshman Kadirgamar, MP, PC has caused shock and consternation.

"We strongly disapprove of the killing. We convey our deep condolences to Ms Kadirgamar, the children and all other members of the Kadirgamar family.

"The killing of Mr.Kadirgamar has happened at a critical time in the peace process. The many killings that have taken place in the past several months have had an adverse impact of the Ceasefire Agreement. Unless the ceasefire is sustained, the peace process cannot recommence.

"Delay and drift in the peace process encourages other parties who want to sabotage the peace process and creates the environment for violence.

"We urge that the peace process be recommenced in a meaningful way. That would be the only way to sustain the Ceasefire Agreement and discourage all forms of violence."
