Muslims will be represented at talks with LTTE - President

[February 1, 2006 - 5.10 GMT]

President Mahinda Rajapaksa gave the assurance that there will be Muslim representation the forthcoming talks between the Government and the LTTE, scheduled for later this month.

He gave this assurance when he met a delegation of the All Ceylon Muslim Congress (ACMC) at Temple Trees last night (Jan 31).

The President informed the Muslim delegates that the Government was committed to achieve peace with dignity, which meant peace for all the people of this country.

Hitherto, he had at all times acted with no injustice to the Muslims and he would deviate from that policy in the future, too.

President Rajapaksa explained that the primary objective of “Mahinda Chintana” was that of protecting the rights of all ethnic groups, which included the Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim, Burgher and all other peoples of this country and that he would not act in a manner that would harm any citizen of Sri Lanka.
