US condemns Jaffna attacks, urges parties to uphold CFA

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 06 December 2005, 04:15 GMT]
US State Department Deputy Spokesman Adam Ereli in a statement issued on Monday called on the Government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to take immediate action to prevent violence and to uphold the terms of the Ceasefire Agreement.

The following statement was issued by the United States Department of State in Washington, D.C. on December 5, 2005:

Sri Lanka - Violations of the Ceasefire Agreement


Statement by Adam Ereli, Deputy Spokesman

The United States remains gravely concerned about persistent violations of the Ceasefire Agreement, particularly over the past few weeks.

We condemn the December 4 Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) attack in Jaffna on a Sri Lanka Army vehicle that caused the deaths of seven soldiers. Such violence is inconsistent with LTTE claims to be committed to the peace process.

We call on both the Government of Sri Lanka and the LTTE to take immediate action to prevent violence and to uphold the terms of the Ceasefire Agreement.
