SLMM - Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission
The Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) created the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) through the signing of the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) on February 22nd 2002. Based on the CFA The Royal Norwegian Government (NRG) and the Government of Sri Lanka concluded a Status of Mission Agreement (SOMA) where status, privileges and immunities of SLMM and its members are defined and determined. The SOMA is endorsed by the LTTE leadership. The general opinion from the international community seems to be that the SLMM is of vital importance for keeping the fragile cease fire. As a monitoring mission the SLMM is not involved in the Norwegian government's facilitation of the peace talks.
