Now it is talking time for LTTE, that too unconditionaly. But looks like they did not understood what Sri Lankan government asked for. Not unconditional talk, but unconditional surrender of weapons.
COLOMBO: After being pushed to a small strip of land, the beleaguered LTTE has offered fresh talks without pre-conditions but the Sri Lankan government snubbed the proposal, asking the Tamil Tigers to lay down arms first.
Balasingham Nadesan, the political head of the rebels, has again called for an urgent ceasefire, saying the Tigers would enter negotiations with the government "without pre-conditions", The Sunday Times reported today.
"We call for a ceasefire, loudly and clearly," he told the newspaper in an interview.
"Continuous denial of humanitarian access to the civilian population, and non-stop artillery and aerial attacks, are creating an unbearable situation," Nadesan said.
