Renegotiate Ceasefire Agreement - US Congressman

[b]Renegotiate Ceasefire Agreement - US Congressman Frank Pallone[/b]

Signalling that a "return to armed conflict in Sri Lanka is a very real threat", Congressman Frank Pallone told the US House of Representatives on February 8, 2006 that the Ceasefire Agreement should be renegotiated.

Moving a resolution in the US House of Representatives Congressman Pallone urged, "in the strongest possible term, the Government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to renegotiate a ceasefire agreement and implement in a productive and successful manner."

This is seen by political observers as a slap in the face of Norway and the LTTE -- two parties manouevring to keep the one-sided Ceasefire Agreement going to the advantage of the LTTE and not to peace.
