Full text of the press release follows:

Colombo, April 12, 2006 The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms the recent terrorist attacks carried out by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) against the armed forces of Sri Lanka. Our sympathies are with the families of the victims. The U.S. calls upon the LTTE to cease these violent attacks, to return to the cease-fire implementation talks and to engage constructively in the search for a political solution. The U.S. commends the continued restraint of the Government in the face of these provocations.

The U.S. also condemns other recent incidents of violence, in particular the April 7 murder of Mr. V. Vigneswaran in Trincomalee.

The U.S. calls upon both the LTTE and the GSL to fulfill the commitments they made at the February talks in Geneva and to take all possible steps to build a positive atmosphere for future talks.
