Red Star Relief Task Force ready to go to China

JVP leader Somawansa Amarasinghe has intimated to the Chinese Ambassador in Sri Lanka Mr. Ye Dabo that his party's "Red Star Relief Task Force" was prepared to dispatch a team of relief workers along with doctors to engage in relief activities in the Sichuan earth quake last week.

Somawansa said that the JVP's Red Star Relief Task Force gained considerable experience during the tsunami that struck Sri Lanka's coastal areas on December 26, 2004.

The Chinese Ambassador has informed the JVP and said that he would contact his Government and would get back to the JVP leader. The latter had also requested the Ambassador to convey his party's deepest condolences to the Government of China and to the Chinese Communist party.

JVP Parliamentarians Sunil Handunnetti and Ramalingam Chandrasekeran were associated with Mr. Amarasinghe at the meeting with the Chinese Ambassador.
