Sri Lanka Tamil party says Muslim Congress could discuss with them on ethnic issue

May 30, Colombo: Sri Lanka’s major Tamil party, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has said the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) could hold discussions with the TNA leadership instead of participating in the talks between the government and the alliance.

TNA parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran has told the media that the TNA had a good relationship with the SLMC and kept the major Muslim party informed of the developments in the talks between the government and the TNA.

Premachandran made this comment in the backdrop of the SLMC insisting that the party be given an opportunity to represent the Muslim community at the talks between the Government and the TNA on finding a political solution to the ethnic issue.

Parliamentarian H. M. M. Harees has said that all efforts made to solve the ethnic issue so far have failed due to the non-inclusion of the Muslim community.
