LTTE committed to peace -Pathuman

[TamilNet, Friday, 20 September 2002, 02:51 GMT]
"We are firmly committed to peace. But keeping a strong, well trained military force is essential for achieving legitimate aspirations of the Tamils, said Pathuman addressing a gathering Thursday evening at Chenaiyoor Central College grounds south of the eastern port town of Trincomalee after taking salute at the passing out parade for new LTTE recruits.

Commander Pathuman, after awarding certificates to the new recruits said, "Passing out parades are routine events within any armed force. No one should misunderstand this event and other military exercises as preparation for war by the LTTE."

More than 1700 fighters from Trincomalee have died in the fighting to date.

Tamil National Alliance parliamentary group leader and Trincomalee MP, Mr.R.Sampanthan, said "The LTTE is participating in the peace talks with the government in Thailand as the sole representative of the Tamil people. LTTE has the strength and determination to work towards a just and durable solution to the Tamil national question."

Attorney-at-Law Mr.K.Sivapalan, member of the SLMM in the Trincomalee district also spoke.
