Worldbank Country Director, Peter Harold, in a meeting with Head of LTTE Political Wing, S.P.Thamilchelvan, in Kilinochchi Friday, expressed his condolences to people over the loss of their loved ones and added, "the institutions we represent, would continue extending solidarity in the reconstruction efforts,” said the LTTE's peace secretariat website.



Associated with Mr Harold in the meeting was Alessandro Pio, Country Director, Asian Development Bank (ADB), Brian Smith, Post Conflict Specialist, ADB, Jeremy Carter, Sr. Resident Representative IMF, Tomoyuki Kimura, Director, Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC), Ueshima Takumi, Resident Representative, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Mitsuo Kawaguchi Counsellor, Embassy of Japan and Mr. Naresha Duraiswamy of the World Bank.

Thamilchelvan briefed the bank officials on the current status of on-going relief and rehabilitation programmes for the displaced people in the welfare centres and stressed the importance of a coordinated effort at the district level. He also added that the international community has a moral responsibility to take stock of the situation in the context of the devastation already caused by two decades of war and the cease-fire having failed to deliver normalcy. This Thamilchelvan said, necessitates innovative modalities to ensure that the affected people get the benefits according to their local needs and reconstruction plans formulated at the local level, the website said.
