UNP to talk despite accusations

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 15 March 2000, 20:49 GMT]
The General Secretary of the United National Party (UNP) said that the UNP would participate in second round of talks scheduled for tomorrow with the Government despite allegations made by President Chandrika that the main opposition party was working hand in glove with the LTTE.

However, he added that his party would continue to contribute its share to find a consensus in reaching a political settlement to the national issue.
