[b]Washington, D.C. 28 April ([/b] Ambassadors from Sri Lanka’s main donor countries met Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapakse on Thursday to urge his government for restraint while arrangements are under way for the Co-Chairs to meet in Oslo on Friday to discuss the volatile situation in Sri Lanka.

The Colombo-based ambassadors expressed that they understood the government was provoked in the aftermath of attack on its army headquarters.

The situation in Sri Lanka deteriorated after a suspected Tamil Tiger suicide bomber blew her up within the premises of the Army headquarters in the capital city of Colombo killing nine and severely injuring the army commander Lieutenant General Sarath Fonseka, and subsequent security forces air attacks on LTTE stronghold in the eastern part of the island nation.
