A delegation of the CWC led by Mr.Arumugam Thondaman flew to Killinochchi Sunday morning and held wide ranging discussion with the leader of the LTTE Mr.V.Pirapaharan regarding several problems concerned about the peace process. He described the meeting with Mr.Pirapaharan as a historical and a constructive one.

Mr.Anton Balasingham, the LTTE's political advisor, Mr. S. P. Thamilchelvan, head of the movement's political wing and Mr.V.Balakumar assisted Mr.Pirapaharan in the discussion.

The CWC comprised Mr.Muthu Sivalingam, Deputy Minister, Mr.R.Yogarajan, Parliamentarian and Mr.M.S.Sellasamy, Deputy Leader of the CWC.
