An honourable peace my noble objective - President
MY Government will be ready to engage the LTTE in
discussing a political solution when the LTTE declares their
readiness to resume negotiations, which they unilaterally abandoned.
To this end, I shall soon initiate consultations with all parties
concerned as a matter of top priority with a view to building
consensus. My priority work in this area will include consultations
with friendly countries who have worked with us in the past in
regard to the peace process.
Lankan children are peace-lovers
"IF THE world gets to see that we are living in
peace, that will make us so happy that we can be proud of our
country." This is a quote from a Sri Lankan child who participated
in a recent poll on peace. And this is substantial evidence that
"Sri Lankan children are peace lovers and they yearn to continue to
live in a peaceful environment."
