TamilNet, August 13, 2006 11:42 GMT
Director of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Peace Secretariat, S. Puleedevan, denied the press reports which said that Tigers have made a fresh offer for talks. 'There is absolutely no truth in these reports. Colombo is adamant in finding a military solution and we are defending to safeguard our people and territory,' said Puleedevan.
'I told Head of Mission
that Colombo has made up its mind towards a military solution despite the goodwill gestures extended by the LTTE last Friday,' Puleedevan said.
'It is the Sri Lankan Government that continues to believe in military solution to the conflict,' Puleedevan said refuting the press reports that quoted Government officials as saying that the Tigers were seeking renewed peace talks.
