Find Consensus Within Government Coalition Before Seeking Our Co-operation - UNP MP

[TamilNet, Sunday, 19 December 2004, 13:48 GMT]
"Whilst we are always ready to support the peace process, any effort by the government to advance the peace process without first dealing with the contradictions and conflict within their coalition ranks will be in vain" said Dr. Rajitha Senaratne, UNP MP for Kalutara District, at a press conference held in Colombo Sunday.

"The president has expressed her commitment to the peace process, yet the UPFA government's main coalition partner JVP openly contradicts her position, yet she accuses the UNP for not co-operating with the peace process", Dr. Senaratne told the press.

"We have stated our position very clearly when we declined to participate in the national advisory committee meetings. Our views on this issue have been confirmed by the co-chairs of the donor countries when they expressed their dismay at the government's handling of the peace process and the position of the JVP", he told.

"Sri Lanka is on the verge of losing all foreign aid and loans and the peace process is at grave risk of collapsing. The president's only motive is to seek means to extend her political life by trying to impose her political agenda", he added.

The press conference was held at the office of the opposition leader.
