|LTTE wants four amendments to MoU
by Dinasena Rathugamage
The LTTE has proposed four amendments to the existing cease-fire agreement.
The proposed amendments were given to Norwegian ambassador Hans Bradsker by LTTE political wing head SP Thamilselvan on Wednesday. They envisage changes relating to problems in the North-East sea area, high-security zones and the A-9 and the powers of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM). Thamilselvan made the suggestions to the Norwegian ambassador at a three-hour long meeting.
Thamilselvan had also spoken of the need to effectively deal with problems that arise in implementing the cease-fire agreement.
The ambassador had told Thamilselvan that he would a come back to him on the governments stance on the suggested changes and also inform the Norwegian government of the development.
The Norwegian ambassador will follow-up with another meeting in the Wanni as soon as the governments stance is known.
Responding to inquiries on the resumption of LTTE participation in the talks, Thamilselvan had said that Anton Balasingham would make the organisations position clear.
