Sri Lankan rebels say P-TOMS not part of peace process, but confidence-building measure
font size    

Sri Lanka's rebel leader has reiterated the President's stance that the proposed Post-Tsunami Operational Management Structure (P-TOMS) was not a political agreement but an administrative arrangement to grant relief to Dec. 26 Tsunami survivors, the official Daily News reported on Monday.

The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE)'s political wing leader S. P. Thamilselvan said working with the government to distribute foreign aid could build confidence among the warring parties.

Referring to the proposed P-TOMS, Thamilselvan said, "It is purely for the administration of post tsunami aid," adding that the LTTE was prepared for a joint distribution of tsunami relief to those affected by the boxing day catastrophe.

He also underscored that the proposed P-TOMS which the President has backed publicly was not part of the Norwegian backed peace process but could be a useful confidence-building measure.
