The ruling United National Front Thursday announced that the devolution of power would be the key issue at the next round of peace talks between the GOSL and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.

Cabinet spokesman and Minister Professor G.L.Peiris told media persons Thursday that the sixth round of peace talks scheduled to begin on March 18 at Tokyo would elaborate on the fiscal aspects of the devolution of power.

The two parties of the talks now feel that the groundwork has been laid for commencing talks on political issues, said Minister Mr.Peiris.
