The SLMC had made it clear to the UN special envoy that the rights of Muslim people could be ensured in a final political solution based on the federal concept. Mr.Brahimi informed the SLMC delegation that the purpose of his visit to Sri Lanka, at the invitation of President Ms Chandrika Kumaratunge, was to submit a report to UN Secretary General about the current status of the peace process, the SLMC release added.
