A three-member defence team of the American Embassy in Colombo Monday arrived Jaffna to ensure security for the UA Deputy Secretary of State Mr. Richard Armitage who is scheduled to visit the peninsula Thursday. The US team flew into Palaly main SLA base Monday morning.

Two helicopters of the Sri Lanka Air Force carrying the US team accompanied by Sri Lanka Army officials landed at public grounds of the Chavakachcheri Urban Council in Thenmaradchi area Monday. The public ground is at present in the control of the SLA.

People were asked by the SLA not to use certain roads such as Post Office road and Perunkulam junction in Chavakachcheri town till the US defence team left the area.

US defence officials visited the coastal areas in Thenmaradchchi area, residents said.
