UK talks not on UN report or political solution

UK talksThe participants at talks being held in the UK on Sri Lanka strongly denied reports it has anything to do with the UN human rights report on Sri Lanka or on a political solution to the National issue.

Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera and Tamil National Alliance Parliamentarian M.A. Sumanthiran are among those in London to have talks with the Tamil diaspora, including the Global Tamil Forum (GTF).

Taking part in a discussion on a London based Tamil television station, Sumanthiran said the meeting was purely to discuss the immediate needs of the Tamils in the North and East.

He also said that the participants will look at how best to address the immediate concerns of the Tamils in Sri Lanka, both before and after the upcoming Parliament elections.

Sumanthiran said that the London talks were not to be made public but yet information had leaked and this had led to misinformation being spread by some elements.

He also said that there is a role the international community can play in addressing the needs of the Tamils, particularly through financial assistance, and so representatives of some foreign Governments and agencies are also taking part in the UK talks.

The TNA MP said that the Tamil diaspora have also shown interest in having a role to assist the Tamils in the North and East and as a result they are also attending the discussions in London.

GTF spokesman Suren Surenthiran also denied reports that more talks were to take place in Dubai, as was reported on some websites.

He said that at the London talks, the participants will look at a time frame to address the urgent needs of the Tamils. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. We Sri Lankan are not in position to deal with GTF or WTC ,both are back by LTTE ruthless Terrorist outfit. Majority member are Tamil Terrorist leaders in GFT ,they are political perspectives and committed to be established Tamil rough state in North-East.
    Tamil Nadu is their homeland all Tamil speaking mother land in India.
    Why they want to demand homeland in Sri lanka?

    Why? UK and USA support such move? Both White Race -man, dominating want builds Military and Naval base East of Trincomalee and Iranwila in Military camp in North.

    GTF is support this cause and proposed project.
    GTF is want split Sri lanka ,for Tamil rough state.
    They are committed to eliminated entire Sinhalese-Buddhist race from Island of Sri lanka.

    They supposed to Created puppet and weak state in south by Christian theology Anglican leadership back by Ranil.Wickmasinghe and Managal Samaweera of UNP.
    TNA is having MOU with UNP to surrender our National Sovereignty to USA and UK. This new political move by US to totally eradicated Sinhalese -Buddhist race from Island.
    They( US/UK ) want destroy our 2600 civilization of Sinhalese race ,with support of Tamil terrorist and TNA. UNP is political agenda is nothing else it will build weak nation SOUTH to surrender to Tamils and US!

    • Whoever you are you seem to have very good understanding on future plans of leftover Tamil Terrorists.

      • On one end there are the Tamil extremist who demonize those who come forward to find solutions, and on the other end, the above two… Sinhala radicals. Both sides living in the past and are a barrier for the Island to progress forward collectively. Even God can’t save Sri Lanka.
