TNA invited to New Delhi for talks

The Indian government has invited Tamil National Alliance (TNA) delegates to participate in talks with the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other delegates on 10th October. This invitation comes after President Mahinda Rajapaksa recently met with Manmohan Singh and Pranab Mukjherjee along side India’s External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna on his recent visit to India that received critical views from the main parties of Tamil Nadu.

Speaking to Ceylon Today, TNA MP from Jaffna district Suresh Premachandran said they have received the invitation and expected the meeting to focus on initiating stalled dialogue between TNA and the government. Commenting on the past eighteen rounds of talks between the two sides, Premachandran said they had taken place “without reaching anything constructive”. The last such round of talks took place in early January of this year.
