International mediation of talks welcome - TNA

Following the stalled talks, the TNA stated they would welcome "international facilitation" of any future talks with the government of Sri Lanka, if the government approved.

The TNA's media spokeperson, Suresh Premachandran, said,

 “There is no favoured choice in this case.  However, we are for an external facilitator if the government is willing,”

According to reports, TNA MPs Selvam Adaikkalanathan and P Sritharan have urged the US to take on this role.

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
