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.
