Tigers reiterate consent to ceasefire

[TamilNet, Saturday, 08 November 2008, 16:42 GMT]
Liberation Tigers Political Head B. Nadesan, when contacted by TamilNet on Saturday, following reports of Tamil Nadu leaders seeking clarification on LTTE's stand on ceasefire, said "there is no hesitation on our side to reiterate our position that we have always wanted a ceasefire." It is the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) that unilaterally abrogated the ceasefire, Mr. Nadesan said and added that the Tigers were only fighting a defensive war since Colombo has thrust upon Tamils an aggressive war.

The LTTE Political Head also said they have always reiterated that they have been committed to the Ceasefire.

Earlier, the State Secretary of the Communist Party of India (CPI), Mr. D. Pandian issued a public statement urging those who were fighting for the democratic rights of the Eezham Tamils, especially the political leadership of the Liberation Tigers, to come forward to announce their stand in a clarifying manner.
