Rajapakse to hold All Party Conference

[TamilNet, Thursday, 02 March 2006, 11:51 GMT]
Sri Lanka's President Mahinda Rajapakse is planning to hold the All Party Conference (APC), on March 6 Monday to brief the leaders of all registered political parties represented in the current parliament on the outcome of the Geneva peace talks, political sources in Colombo said. He will also brief the leaders on the matters to be discussed at the next round of talks with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

Mr Rajapakse is expected to seek a consensus on several matters and issues to be taken up with the LTTE at the nex round of talks to be held for three days commencing from April 19, sources said.

The LTTE has said after the first round of talks in Geneva last month that it would give top priority to the question of resettling several thousands displaced families now languishing in welfare centers and refugee camps in their own houses and lands now being occupied by the government troops in the northern province in high security zones (HSZs), sources said.

Meanwhile, the Presidential Secretariat is making arrangement for Mr Rajapakse to hold separate meetings with the leaders of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) and Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU), which have expressed critical comments on the outcome of the Geneva talks, before the all party conference, sources said.
