The UNP rejected the possibility of a federal solution to the long-running ethnic conflict, the latest southern party to do so.
Deputy Foreign Minister Ajith Perera said the policy of the party and its alliance the UNF was to devolve powers to the provinces in consultation with all concerned and within a united and undivided Sri Lanka, Colombo Gazette reported.
“We will not agree to a Federal solution,” Mr Perera said insisted.
The minister further stressed that there was no new or past agreement with the TNA with regards to the elections.
