Colombo denies it rejected LTTE proposal

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 04 August 2004, 08:29 GMT]
Minister Maithripala Sirisena, the General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), has issued a statement Wednesday denying "there is absolutely no truth in the reports" that quoted him as saying that the Sri Lanka government will not recommence peace talks with the LTTE on the basis of the Interim Self Governing Authority (ISGA) proposals.

"Minister Sirisena says that the President at an Executive Committee meeting of the ruling Alliance on 2nd August 2004 stated there is no change in her Government’s stance. The President maintains that the GOSL is willing to discuss with the LTTE, its proposal for an interim administration alongside the talks to reach a final solution acceptable to all communities." said the statement.

State-run Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC) announced in its Wednesday morning news bulletin in English, Sinhala and Tamil quoting Minister Sirisena, that the Sri Lanka government will not recommence peace talks with the LTTE on the basis of the Interim Self Governing Authority (ISGA) proposals submitted by the LTTE.
