Trincomalee district parliamentarian Mr.R.Sampanthan said "anti-peace forces know that Tamils are to get a fair political solution through peace talks. Such elements are now trying to sabotage the peace process in order to deprive the Tamils from getting a fair and lasting political solution to their problems.
