CFA has failed to advance peace-Sampanthan

[TamilNet, Saturday, 15 October 2005, 16:30 GMT]
The ceasefire (CFA) agreement signed by the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) in the year 2002 with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam because of the military strength of the LTTE in the battlefield has not helped the Tamil speaking people to achieve their political aspirations even after four years, said Mr.R.Sampanthan, Tamil National Alliance parliamentary group leader and Trincomalee district parliamentarians addressing an awareness meeting in regard to the proposed Tamil National Resurgence Convention which is to be held on October 22, sources said.

Mr.K.Thurairetnasingham, Trincomalee district TNA parliamentarian presided the meeting, which was held Saturday evening at Trincomalee Peruntheru Vigneswara Maha Vidiyalayam.

GOSL and other forces that are against Tamils achieving their legitimate political aspirations with the backing of LTTE military strength are working hard to sabotage the ceasefire agreement with the help of state armed forces and para military groups, Mr.Sampanthan said.

Mr.Sampanthan further said a political solution should be found for the Tamil national question with adequate powers leading to an autonomous region of NorthEast.

Mr.K.Thurairetnasingham said the Tamil National Resurgence Conventions are held to urge the international community to recognize the self determination of Tamil speaking people and to witness the struggle and barriers they are facing to achieve legitimate political aspiration through peaceful negotiations.

Tamil people should be vigilant not to be distracted by elements hostile to the Tamil cause and are seeking to sabotage the TNRC in Trincomalee by spreading unfounded rumors, the MP said.
