The UNP and JHU met today to discuss the UNP's draft document on the constitution.
Earlier, the UNP's General Secretary Tissa Attanayake welcomed the meeting saying, "The fact that a hard line party was willing to sit down and talk to us on constitutional reform is indicative of the fact that our new radical programme has had a positive impact on the political fraternity."
A meeting between the UNP and JVP has also been planned, said Attanayake.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
