United States has said that Sri Lanka should stop paramilitary activities that continue to operate in the north of the country.

A senior state department official addressing a press briefing that was held in view of US Secretary of state Hillary Clinton's visit to India, also said about Sri Lanka “Where we and the Indians are pushing for progress is on this whole process of reconciliation, where – which is – includes a wide variety of different issues.

They need to organize provincial council elections up in the north so that there will be, for the first time, an indigenous leadership in that area that was ruled by the LTTE for 30 years. They need to complete the resettlement process.

They need to stop the activities of paramilitaries that continue to operate in that part of the country.” Commenting on the resettlement progress in Sri Lanka the state department said quoting the official that “almost all of those have now been resettled in the north. There’s about 10,000 or so that still need to be resettled, but generally, I think the government’s record on that has been good.”

    Your absolutely right. No more paramilitary and eventually (soon) army, navy and air force. The police should be in charge and civil liberties and civil law should come into places.

    A woman who couldn't manage her own family trying to dictate terms to the world, What a shame.

    As it was under LTTE control for 30 years... let GOSL to spare little more time. To become everything normalcy would be a matter of time effecting. That's so obvious. Hillary don't make troubles again. Enough is enough.

    Her family is in perfect shape now. Check the facts before commenting. Besides she is a government official of US and family things and official things are separate matters in those countries. You people try to judge everything from SL family politics' standards.

    Hillary is trying to manage Sri Lanka when there is so much trouble in US. What amazes people is that she still loves to go to countries around Sri Lanka but so scared to step in SL and have straight talks and get the answers from GOSL.
