[TamilNet, Tuesday, 24 December 2002, 15:14 GMT]
"We acknowledge the enormous contribution of Tamil expatriates from across the world to the progress of our struggle. On our leader Pirapaharan's directive we are opening co-ordination centers for Tamil expatriate visitors to get any help they need to make their visit an enjoyable and rewarding experience," said Kausalyan, Head of Batticaloa-Ampara political section of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) opening the co-ordination center in Kalladi, Batticaloa, today.

The opening ceremony was presided by Senathi, Head Batticaloa town political division of LTTE. Batti-Ampara Director of Nitharsanam, Rajeevan, Batti-Ampara Head of LTTE women political section, Premini, and District commissioner for Housing Authority, S. Pathmanathan lit the ceremonial lamp.

Kausalyan hoisted the Tamil Eelam flag, Batti-Ampara deputy head of LTTE political section, Kirushan unveiled the name board and Manalaru Vijayan cut the ribbon to open the Expatriate co-ordination center.

"Like Israel's Golda Meir's speech on 2 January 1948 to the Council of Jewish Federations in Chicago that made thousands of Jews to give more that made possible the Jewish State, Tamil expatriates responded to our leader Pirapaharan's appeal in times of need that kept our struggle moving forward. These centres reflect our appreciation to our expatriate community.

"Our expatriate brothers and sisters too have suffered as they relocated to unknown areas across the globe. Even while they face difficulties fighting nature, trying to make a living in an alien culture they did not forget their roots or the suffering of people back in the NorthEast.

"When the expatriates visit our center we will provide all the information and help necessary to ensure that their needs during their short stay are met.

"Our committment to education, culture and technological advancement brings fear to others who try to suppress us. These are the result of the vision, intellect and deep love for the community by our leader. We fervently hope that our people can enjoy the fruits of this labour in freedom and with dignity," said Kausalyan.

Manalaru Vijayan said, "Though our expatriates have physically left our shores, their life and soul are still attached to their motherland. Their economic assistance has strengthened the arms of our leader. We would never have reached this stage in our struggle without the help from our expatriates. We salute them."

Batti-Ampara head of LTTE women political wing, Sita and Batticaloa Town LTTE women political wing, Gaya, also participated in the event.

LTTE has informed the expatriates to use the number 06-522598 to contact the Batticaloa co-ordination center upon their arrival to the eastern town.
