TNA in a special discussion with US and British diplomats.
A group of TNA members held a special discussion with US and British diplomats in Colombo yesterday.
TNA Leader R. Sampandan, General Secretary Mawei Senadhirajah and M.A. Sumandhiran have participated in the discussion.
During the discussion, the TNA group has pointed out that they are not satisfied with the American backed Geneva resolution against Sri Lanka.
The group has stressed that the content of the resolution is not sufficient therefore several more issues such as finding a rapid political solution, confining of security forces and land disputes should be included in the resolution.
Responding to the TNA, the participating diplomats have agreed with the TNA to discuss their demands with US and UK leaders.
Meanwhile, Minister of External Affairs Professor G.L Peiris, representing President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Chair-in-Office of the Commonwealth, at the Commonwealth Day celebrations in London, held discussions with Kamalesh Sharma, Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, at Marlborough House in London.
Minister Peiris discussed with Secretary-General Sharma some broad ideas about how the organisation could develop a road map to meet the expectations of the large swath of humanity comprising the population of the Commonwealth.
