[TamilNet, Wednesday, 14 July 2004, 17:53 GMT]
''Statements made by the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) and chauvinist political parties on the question of finding a political solution to the Tamil national question are aimed to create disharmony among communities and to unleash violence in Sri Lanka,'' said Mr.S.Elilan, Trincomalee district political head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) addressing a meeting held at Eachchilampathu Sri Shenabaga Maha Vidiyalayam in the Muttur east division Tuesday. The meeting was organized by the Thamileelam National Resurgence Forum, sources said.

Mr.Elilan further said, ''We are prepared to face a war if it is thrusted on us. Tamil people are also prepared to meet any challenges in finding a meaningful political solution to their problems.''

Speeches during Viduthalai release in TrincoHe charged that the main political parties in Sri Lanka, which come to power through elections, have failed to produce a just and fair political solution to the Tamil struggle.

''The Sinhala main political parties are dragging their feet when the question of finding a political solution to meet the legitimate political aspirations of Tamils is taken up for discussion in peace talks,'' said Mr.Elilan.

At the commencement of the meeting the head of the Thamileelam National Resurgence Forum Mr.Sanjiv lit the common flame of sacrifice and Mr.Sencheran, political head of Verugal division, hoisted the Thamileelam national flag. LTTE Muttur division political head Mr.Thangan and Mr.Sanjiv also spoke.
