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.

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
