    What can we say? We can welcome the move, well done, children should be left alone.

    UN,

    You guyes no need to talk with Karuna.LTTE will do what is necessary to do.Then those kids will be free.

    Karuna will not have anybody in his group if he stops the forcible recruitment of children. He is doing it with the full support and encouragement of the GOSL and SLDF.

    The children are forcibly recruited in GOSL controlled areas and so the GOSL can stop it if it wants to. But it actually encourages it. I am sure the UN is aware of this.

    This is a good move. I always told spare the children in adult grown conflicts.

    Whether we like it or not Karuna is becoming a one of the deciding factors on this war, it will take some time to digest this new factor.

    The question is, are there enough territory to split among all the warring sides?

    Karuna is one of the greatest things that ever happen to all Sri Lankans, he is the first crack on the `ltte brutal dictatorship stone`.

    This is a good move by the UN. Radhika Coomaraswamy is a very effective person. Whether it be Karuna or LTTE leadership recruitment of children is wrong. Recruitment of children violates international human rights and humanitarian law that explicitly prohibits the recruitment of children as soldiers and the participation of children in active hostilities.

    Everyone should try to protect and promote children`s rights.

    [Officials from the United Nations are ready for a dialogue with the breakaway Karuna faction.

    A senior UN representative, who arrived in Sri Lanka on Monday, is due to meet representatives of `Colonel` Karuna as part of an ongoing initiative to dissuade the group from recruiting child soldiers. Karuna quit the LTTE in March 2004.]

    please atleast accept now that karuna and the gang operate from govt controlled area.
