[TamilNet, Sunday, 26 January 2003, 19:14 GMT]
Sri Lanka's Interior Minister Mr.John Amaratunge, while addressing a seminar held in Trincomalee Town Hall Sunday morning, said that it is very difficult to find solutions to all contradictions created during the twenty year old war within a year. The seminar was held to mobilize the support of the people for the peace process now being taken forward by the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), sources said.

The minister further said that the present United National Front government will not abandon its peace efforts at any cost. "We and LTTE leader Mr.Pirapaharan are firm in our stand to achieve a political solution through negotiation," said Minister Mr. Amaratunge.

The Peoples Alliance General Secretary Mr.D.M.Jayaretna has said that the UNF government would be ousted by May this year. "This is a canard by the main opposition to sabotage the Aid conference scheduled to be held in Tokyo in June," Minister John Amaratunge said.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Mr.A.H.M.Azwer and Trincomalee district UNP parliamentarian Mr.M.A.M.Maharoof also spoke.
