The government has received a confidential report regarding the possible LTTE buildup in Venezuela and the External Affairs Ministry is studying the report at the moment, External Affairs Ministry sources told Daily Mirror online.
Earlier it was reported that the Sri Lankan envoy for Cuba Tamara Kuliyanayagam had visited neighboring Venezuela to discuss matters with the Venezuelan government officials and report back to the Sri Lankan government.
The latest development in Venezuela comes following the creation of a Transnational Government of Tamil Eelaam (TGTE) in several European countries and elsewhere.
The controversial TGTE held its inaugural sessions in the city of Philadelphia from May 17-19 in the US, where the LTTE is listed as a terrorist outfit.
The meeting comes in the wake of the Sri Lankan government urging foreign governments not to give credence to moves by the LTTE to create a government in exile in support of an Eelam state. (Daily Mirror online)
