Mr.William O Blake is reported to have told JVP leader that it was very difficult to defeat LTTE militarily, and the current conflict could only be solved by holding talks with the parties concerned.

Wimal Weerawanse is reported to have told the US ambassador that the LTTE has been weakened due to the ongoing military offensive.
