Tamil issues must be resolved before considering Sri Lanka's unity government, says TNA

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) said that Tamil issues would have to be addressed before any decision could be taken on joining a unity government with the new regime.

Responding to questions on the prospect of the TNA forming a unity government, TNA spokesperson Suresh Premachandran, speaking to Xinhua, said,

“If the government invites us, we will first have to reach an agreement on various issues, including the human rights concerns. Only if the government can reach a solution to the Tamil issue, will we consider joining the proposed national government.”

The Northern Provincial Council, last week passed a resolution calling on international and Sinhalese community to provide justice for systemic genocide against the Tamil people on the island.
