The Minister told the prelate that the peace talk facilitated by the Norwegian government between the Sri Lankan government and the LTTE is now being taken forward in the correct path.

The donor countries have expressed confidence that both parties to the conflict, the Liberation Tigers and the Government of Sri Lanka are sincere in their attempt to find a permanent peace, Minister Peiris told the prelates who rushed to Kandy, central capital of the country on Minister's return to Colombo Sunday night from Thailand, sources said.

The Mahanayake Thera of Asgiriya Chapter expressed his appreciation for the flexibility shown by the delegations of the government and the LTTE at the Thailand peace talks arriving at decisions on important matters such as the proposal for formation of Joint Task Force and other committees to diffuse tension and finding a political solution to the conflict, sources said.
