LTTE delegation meets Swiss officials

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 02 September 2003, 15:23 GMT]
A delegation of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, led by its political wing leader, Mr. S.P. Thamilchelvan and comprising Batticaloa-Ampara Special commander, Col. Karuna, and Director of the LTTE’s Peace Secretariat, Mr. Puleedevan, met with Swiss government officials in Bern, Switzerland, Monday, Tamil media sources said.

The discussions centered on the Sri Lankan government's Interim Administration proposal for resettlement, rehabilitation and development for the Northeast, the sources said.

The LTTE leaders explained to the Swiss officials the importance of an interim administration with adequate powers for the effective implementation of the rehabilitation and reconstruction plans in the war-devastated Northeast, the sources said.

The Swiss team comprised Mr. Peter Maurer, the Head of Political Department IV of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), the South Asia division chief of the DFA, and the Swiss Ambassador to Sri Lanka, Mr. Bernardino Regazzoni.

The LTTE team is to return to Sri Lanka Wednesday, the sources added.
