Wigneswaran Meets Indian Foreign Minister

Tamil National Alliance representatives are currently meeting with Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid ahead of his meetings with Northern Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran in Jaffna today.


TNA Leader R. Sampanthan and Parliamentarians M.A. Sumanthiran, Suresh Premachandran and Selvam Adaikalanathan are attending the meeting in Colombo.

The 13th Amendment to the constitution and the recently concluded Northern election at which the TNA won an overwhelming mandate are likely to be under discussion.

The TNA is expected to outline its plans for the NPC at the meeting.

Khurshid called for the full implementation of the 13th Amendment and a political solution that builds on the constitutional provision after his meeting with Foreign Minister G.L Peiris. He said India hoped that after the Northern election the TNA and the Government could address the issue of a political solution and meaningful devolution to the provinces.
