Peace process must be sustained even when difficulties arise
[January 09, 2003 - 10.45 GMT]

The Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) concluded the fourth session of peace talks at the Rose Garden in Thailand. The talks were held from 6-9 January 2003.

A Statement from the Royal Norwegian government said that deliberations were conducted in a frank and constructive atmosphere, with both parties demonstrating their conviction that the peace process must be sustained even when difficult issues are addressed.

Both parties agreed to ask the facilitator to propose procedures to ensure rapid corrective action by the parties in cases of incidents that are, or can be perceived as disrupting the peace process.

Following an agreement made at the third session of talks, a committee was established to ensure the effective inclusion of gender issues in the peace process.
