Northeast GAs brief Prime Minister

[TamilNet, Thursday, 31 January 2002, 14:13 GMT]
Sri Lanka's Prime Minister Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe held discussions Thursday with the government agents of the north and east about situation in their administrative districts in the context of easing the economic embargo on the Vanni and relaxing the restrictions on Tamil civilians in other areas, including Jaffna. The Government Agents for Kilinochchi and Mullaithivu told the PM that there has been no significant improvement yet in the supply of essentials and medicines on which the decade long embargo was lifted earlier this month.

Mr. K Shanmuganathan, the Jaffna GA, apprised the PM of the continuing protest in the peninsula against the restrictions and ban on fishing imposed by the Sri Lankan security forces.

The Prime Minister told the government agents that the problems in restoring normalcy in their war torn districts would be resolved gradually as these required time.

The GAs submitted district situation reports on their respective districts to the P.M.

The special meeting took place at Temple Trees, the Prime Minister's official residence in Colombo.
