Leaders and representatives of all political parties except Tamil National Alliance (TNA) participated in the conference. TNA was not invited.

Leader of Sri Lanka Government delegation, Minister Sripala de Silva explained the details of Geneva talks.

Somawanse Amerasinghe, leader of JVP, speaking at the conference said, "Geneva talks did not adhere to the Mahinda Chintanya but instead was conducted according to Norway's wishes. Norway has succeeded in fulfilling the demands of the Liberation Tigers. If the Government disarms armed groups is agreed in Geneva, it should also disarm the LTTE. Future talks should ensure that the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) is corrected and amended."

Mr Amerawanse also said, the Sri Lanka Government should urgently strengthen Sri Lanka's military.

Leader of JHU, Ven. Ellawala Medananda Thero, speaking at the Conference said that JHU will strongly oppose any effort to disarm any armed group and that the next round of talks should be held in Colombo.
