JVP slams "secret" talks

[TamilNet, Friday, 03 November 2000, 13:13 GMT]
The Janata Vimukthi Peramuna, (JVP) the Marxist party which secured 10 seats at last month's Parliamentary elections, the third largest tally, Friday condemned the "secret" talks between the Norway's special envoy Eric Solheim and the LTTE leader V.Pirapaharan held at Mallavi in the Vanni region on Wednesday.

A press statement issued by the JVP Friday charged that Norway was attempting to impose a political solution on the Sri Lankan government.

The secret talks between the Norway's special envoy and Mr.Pirabakaran is a first step towards to achieve this goal, the statement said.

The JVP led two unsuccessful insurrections to capture state power in Sri Lanka had earlier warned that it would organise country-wide demonstrations against Norway's involvement in finding a political solution to the island's conflict.
