"Historically Trincomalee district belongs to Tamils. According to a leading Sinhala historian late Mr. Paul Peiris, before King Vijaya arrived in the island Koneswaram temple was present in Trincomalee. It proves that Saiva Tamils were living in Trincomalee before King Vijaya arrived. The majority Sinhala community and its political leadership are finding difficult to digest the historical facts that clearly show that Tamils are the legal owners of the Trincomalee," Mr.Sampanthan said.

Mr.Sampanthan added that finding a political solution to the ethnic problem has become a difficult and complicated issue because of Trincomalee district, which possess many natural resources not available in other districts of the northeast province and also in other parts of the country.

"Trincomalee district is an integral part of Tamil homeland and attempting to find a political solution that does not take full cognizance of this fact will imperil the peace process," Mr.Sampanthan stressed.

Parliamentarian Mr.K.Thurairetnasingham said the Tamil armed freedom struggle has attained a new dimension as a people's movement and the new Tamil magazine Konamarutham should contribute to raise awareness among Tamils in search of a just and a fair solution to the conflict.

We are firm in our stand to safeguard our people and our land," said Ms Kaaronja.
