[April 02, 2003 - 6.00 GMT]

The President yesterday assured Colombo’s Diplomatic community that the process of seeking a peaceful resolution to the Sri Lankan conflict will proceed without a pause.

She said, "For my part as head of state, I give the people of Sri Lanka, including those who belong to and support the LTTE, the assurance that whoever may be the government of the day, the process of seeking a peaceful resolution to our conflict will proceed without a pause".

Members of the Diplomatic Corps called at President's House yesterday at the invitation of President Kumaratunga, reviving a routine practice.

“We are of the view that whatever alliance and with whoever takes office the fundamental rights of all Sri Lankans should be respected,” President added.

In her brief presentation she spoke on three key issues via peace, political cohabitation and the state of the economy.

The President said that she remains firmly committed to the furtherance of the peace process which she began in 1994.
