A Tamil National Alliance parliamentary delegation Wednesday morning met with Mr. Stephen Evans, British High Commissioner in Colombo and exchanged views on the proposed talks between the Government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) regarding the implementation of the ceasefire agreement to its word, current position of the P-TOMS following the Supreme Court's interim order, the urgency of establishing the Interim Self Governing Authority (ISGA) and the future political scenario in the south which is expected to be followed with the order of the Supreme Court on the presidential election date controversy on Friday, TNA sources said.

The TNA delegation briefed the UK envoy that the international community should formulate a new plan to ensure the distribution of relief and assistance reach the northeast to rehabilitate and resettle the hundred of thousands of displaced Tamil people in the two decade old war in their own areas.

Mr. Wilson, European Union envoy in Sri Lanka associated in the discussion with British High Commissioner.
