Speaking to local journalists after the meeting Mr. Brattskar said: “I wanted to come up here and see the situation on the ground and also discuss how people feel about their needs in light of a new delegation of donors coming up here on Monday 19th to look at the aid needs for the northeast. I think this is something which we spent quite a bit of time on – discussing aid issues. It was a very useful conversation for me and we also discussed Mr. Thamilchelvan’s visit to Norway. He will be going to Norway probably at the end of January to have meetings with Mr. Helgesen and rest of the peace team there”.

The Norwegian team visited the newly opened Planning and Development Secretariat and met with the Economic Advisor to the LTTE, Dr. Jay Maheswaran.

They met Mr.Thamilchelvan at 11.00am for an hour and had wide ranging discussions including the political situation in the South.
