JVP questions Geneva statement
The JVP says that there is a contradiction between the final statement of the Geneva talks and the initial statement made by the governmentat the inauguration.
Commenting on the agreement JVP parliamentarian Vijitha Hearath said that it was a mistake for the government delegation to agree to strengthen the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA).
“This is a big mistake and it has to be rectified” said Hearath
He added that the CFA is a trap that the UNP has set up and now there are difficulties in getting off it.
Responding to a question Hearath said he is hopeful that the government delegation will correct its mistake at the coming round of talks.
Hearth said that they have conveyed their opinion to the government.
The leader of the government delegation minister Nimal Siripala said that the CFA was an unconstitutional document, in his opening remarks at the Geneva talks.
