LTTE delegation consisting political chief S.P. Tamilselvan, police chief B. Nadeshan and Tiger peace secretariat chief Pulithevan arrived at Sri Lanka's Katunayake International Airport from where they were directly flown to Kilinochchi in a Sri Lankan Air Force helicopter.

Earlier, the Tigers had raised concerns with the Norwegian peace facilitators over the safe transport of their delegation, fearing the government would deny them air transport after the LTTE aborted a meeting with the government intended to discuss the security and operational arrangements of the Scandinavian truce monitors.

The Tiger delegation scuttled the meeting refusing to sit with the Sri Lankan government delegation and demanding the removal of citizens of Denmark, Sweden and Finland from the Sri Lankan Monitoring Mission.
