Sri Lanka on the verge of war

Norwegian politician Erik Solheim will once again travel to Sri Lanka and try to mediate in the conflict between the government and the LTTE.

Erik Solheim travels to Sri Lanka in early December to meet with President Chandrika Kumaratunga and the LTTE Political Wing Head SP Thamilselvan, reported official persons involved in the peace process, to the AP.

The violence in the country is increasing and inhabitants reportedly fear that the 32 month long peace may fall apart.

Solheim played a central role when the parties declared cease-fire in February 2002. The negotiations collapsed in April 2003 when the rebels demanded independence in certain parts of the country, and since then the negotiations have not been resumed.
