Norway's Ambassador to Sri Lanka, Mr. Hans Brattskar, visited Killinochchi and met Head of the Political section of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Mr. S.P. Thamilselvan Wednesday morning. In a meeting that lasted around ninety minutes, the two sides discussed the current impasse in the peace talks and avenues for resolving the deadlock, according to the LTTE’s Peace Secretariat.

After the meeting, Mr. Brattskar and his delegation visited the Tamil Rehabilitation Organisation central bureau and had discussions with the TRO officials. They also inspected two TRO projects underway in the Mullaitivu district, LTTE officials said.

The first visit was to the school for the deaf and blind children located in Vallipunam. The TRO funded 'Iniya Valvu Illam' is home for 70 kids who are hearing and / or visually impaired.

The second visit was to the Bharathi Illam housing those children affected by the war or orphaned as a result of the war. Bharathi Illam, another TRO funded centre, houses more than 160 war affected and orphaned children, according to TRO officials.
