The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) had talks with President Maithripala Sirisena today on a political solution for the Tamils and on the land issue in the North.
TNA Parliamentarian M.A. Sumanthiran said that the talks held today is part of a series of discussions the TNA hopes to have with the President.
He said that the land issue has not been addressed in a satisfactory manner and so the issue was raised with the President.
Sumanthiran said that the President had assured he will look into that and take appropriate action.
During the last regime several acres of land had been released by the army in the North to the land owners.
However the TNA feels that more land taken over during the war by the army can be released.
The TNA is also calling for a political solution to address the core issues behind the ethnic conflict.
The last Government began talks with the TNA to reach a political solution but the talks failed to continue following disagreements between both sides. (Colombo Gazette)
