Government not serious about political settlement- TNA

The TNA have condemned the Sri Lankan government's failure to investigate war crimes and the forestalling of bilateral discussions to address the Tamil peoples leigtimate grievances.

Citing a lack of political will, the main Tamil party urged the government to respond to the TNA's publicly stated basic requirements for future talks.

Speaking to the Associated Press, TNA's Sumanthiran said,

"The message that we have given is that we are disappointed and disillusioned at the Sri Lankan government's failure to show the political will [in sharing political power and postwar rehabilitation]"

"The truth as to what happened must be ascertained and laid bare for reconciliation to take place,"


A delegation from the TNA visited Washington last week and met US State Department Under Secretary, Sherman.
