The government yesterday told the JVP it was not possible to withdraw from the ceasefire agreement at the moment and ousting Norway from its role as peace facilitator now would lead to serious problems internationally.
During a meeting to discuss the JVP`s 20-point common programme, the ruling SLFP however said the ceasefire agreement had to be amended since it believed the agreement was against the Constitution of the country, a JVP spokesman said.
The JVP submitted its 20-point common programme aimed at defeating terrorism and rebuidling Sri Lanka as a basis for extending its support to President Mahinda Rajapaksa`s government.
The JVP`s two key demands were to oust Norway from the role of peace facilitator and nullify the Ceasefire Agreement.
The JVP also suggested that the Cabinet should be reduced to 30, to which the SLFP delegation said the President would respond to it since it came under his purview.
