    BBC - Sri Lankan peace talks in doubt

    Following recent violence, the LTTE (known internationally as the Tamil Tigers) have once again stalled diplomacy in the region by objecting to our navy ships escorting delegates to the conference. The ceasefire monitoring teams clearly state that the LTTE had agreed to our naval presence. The government wishes peace, but the rebels are obstructing the process - without a solid agreement soon, there will be an escalation of hostilities and a breakdown of the ceasefire.

    Will China say something nice about their Maoist allies in Nepal, India and Sri Lanka? After all, it is their backyard!

    Sri Lanka advises that this will provoke a negative response from the Tamil factions, as it is viewed as simply interference. However, we will consider the Indian proposal if we feel it becomes viable.

    China hopes for a peaceful resolution to this situation which would not require a break in the ceasefire. We encourage the LTTE to return to the diplomacy table.

    We do not recognise these people as Maoist and we do not regard them as allies.

    The talks are currently 6 days behind schedule, although we hope to begin them soon.
