'Govt. to take final decision on HSZ soon'-Peiris

[TamilNet, Friday, 17 January 2003, 17:38 GMT]
Prof. G.L.Peiris, a senior minister in the United National Front government (UNF) and the leader of Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) peace delegation, Friday said that he expected the report of the Indian defence expert Sathish Nambiar within next few days on the question of resettling displaced in the high security zones (HSZ) in the Jaffna peninsula. Minister Mr.Peiris told diplomats that the government would take a final decision on the resettlement of displaced in HSZ once it received Nambiar report, sources in Colombo said.

Minister Professor G.L.Peiris Friday met the foreign diplomats in Colombo and briefed them on the progress of the peace talks.

Minister Peiris urged the foreign diplomats to expedite their countries' assistance to Sri Lanka to reconstruct the war ravaged northeast.

He appealed to foreign diplomats not to limit their financial aid to northeast province but also to extend it to other parts of the country.
