Vidar HelgessenIn a meeting at the Norway's UN office in Geneva with LTTE Head of Political Wing, S.P.Thamilchelvan, Mr. Helgesen expressed his concern over the delay in restarting talks and the increasing number of political killings. Thamilchelvan reiterated LTTE's committment to the peace process and told the Foreign Minister that LTTE is waiting for response from the Government of Sri Lanka to recommence negotiations on the basis of ISGA.

Thamilchelvan also denied any involvement in political killings and told Mr.Helgessen that LTTE has already assured Norwegian Ambassador and Head of the SLMM that LTTE will fully cooperate with the Sri Lanka Government through the SLMM in the investigations of these killings.

"The government also has a responsibility to ensure that the CFA article relating to the armed groups and their activities is strictly adhered to and the military desist from having any involvement with the armed groups. Also there are under world gangs, military deserters and a host of armed groups, all of which may be utilized by interested parties to carry on with these killings and thereby discredit the LTTE and sabotage the peace process," Thamilchelvan further told Mr.Helgessen.
