Govt. firm in its commitment to peace - President
[Tuesday, November 28, 2006 - 12.15 GMT]
 

There is no change in the Sri Lanka Government's position regarding peace. The government remains firm in its commitment to peace, said President Mahinda Rajapaksa speaking to Indian journalists at New Delhi today (Nov.28).

When asked for comments on Prabhakaran's Heroes Day speech by members of the India media, President Rajapaksa said there was nothing to comment on it,
but to say it is now usual for the LTTE leader to make such statements every year. This year too such a statement had been made by the LTTE leader.

Whatever the LTTE and its leader may say at different times, there is no change in the Government's position regarding peace. The Government continues to invite the LTTE to come for discussions on achieving peace in
the country, President Rajapaksa said.

President Rajapaksa spoke to the Indian journalists shortly after his meeting with Mr. Pranabh Mukherjee the Indian Minister of External Affairs, at the Maurya Sheraton Hotel today.
