Issuing a media release on the Sri Lankan government’s warning that the LTTE is re-grouping and plotting to renew its violent campaign for a separate state again, the National Peace Council says that the recent events of violence which is the first LTTE-related violence since the end of the war, occurred soon after the passage of the UNHRC resolution calling for an international investigation into the last phase of Sri Lanka’s war.
The release adds that the government has refused to cooperate with this investigation.
The National Peace Council highlights that in the absence of a mutually acceptable political solution, the Tamil Diaspora will persist on highlighting the concerns of civilians living in the former LTTE held areas that continue to disrupt their lives in a variety of ways reminiscent of the ground realities that prevailed during the war.
The National Peace Council therefore urges the government and other political parties in the country to urgently set up institutions to enable the Tamil people to be given a measure of autonomy.
The National Peace Council urges that the Government of Sri Lanka must also discuss with the TNA, a more inclusive political solution, adding that all parties should be honestly committed to develop and foster new, mutually beneficial relationships.
It adds that the absence of dialogue between the different stakeholders weakens and leads to the destruction of relationships.
