JVP Parliamentary Group leader Wimal Weerawansa yesterday said there was a danger of the international community creating a situation for direct intervention in the internal affairs as in the case of UN intervention in Kosovo or Southern Sudan
Addressing a press conference on behalf of the Patriotic National Movement (PNM), at the National Library auditorium, he faulted the international community for repeating their usual mantaram after Tuesday`s mortar attack on a group Colombo based diplomats. He criticized the international community for reiterating their call for a negotiated settlement without deploring the LTTE attack in the strongest of terms.
The LTTE wanted the international community to keep it informed of planned visits to the northern and eastern provinces, he said.
Tuesday`s attack, he claimed was part of their strategy to influence the international community.
The LTTE has clearly proved in its statement, released to coincide with the 5th anniversary of the CFA, that the Oslo-arranged agreement recognized a de-facto state in the North and East.
Weerawansa reiterated the JVP`s call to abrogate the CFA officially even at this late stage and called upon the Government to express its stand on the LTTE statement that they had got international recognition through the CFA being in force over the past five years and as to what strong action they propose to take in this regard, as the people of this country have a right to know where their Government stands, he said.
Weerawansa said the Norwegians too should express their view on this matter as what the Patriotic National Movement said before the signing of the CFA has come true.
Dr. Gunadasa Amerasekera also addressed the Media. The Ven Dambila Amila Thero and Cyril Wickremage also participated.
