The government is ready at any time to hold talks with Tamil National Alliance (TNA), Leader of the House and Irrigation Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva has said.
The Minister was responding to the allegation made by the TNA that the government was not serious about talks with the Tamil party.
The Minister has told The Island newspaper that the government had not decided on any amendments to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.
If any amendments to change the 13th Amendment are needed they will have to be discussed at the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) proposed to solve the ethnic question, the Minister has said.
The government has appointed the PSC to arrive at a consensus on a political solution with all parties represented in the parliament.
The Tamil party is yet to name its representatives to the PSC.
