Leader of the EPDP, minister Douglas Devananda said the Norwegians were trying to only please the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. Devananda said that the Norwegians think they can bring the LTTE to democracy by appeasing them but, they would not be able to do that.
The minister said `The Norwegians had the capacity to start the peace process. But, they don`t have the capacity to sustain it.` Devananda was of the view that the peace process could be handled and taken care of only if Sri Lanka brought India into it.
Devananda, who has escaped over ten assassination attempts by the LTTE, said that the LTTE was not bothered about the international community at all.
`When Prabhakaran wanted to kill Rajiv Gandhi he did that. He did not care for India. When he wanted to kill Premadasa he did so and he did not care for the South. When he wanted to kill Lakshman Kadirgamar he did not care for the international community`
