The European Union has expressed its willingness to engage with the Sri Lankan Government regarding the re-proscription of the LTTE, it was reported yesterday.
This had been conveyed by the officials of European Union Office in Sri Lanka, including the European Union Ambassador to Sri Lanka, Mr. David Daly, when a group of UNP MPs met him last evening.
UNP Leadership Council member Lakshman Kiriella, one of the four MPs who met the EU officials, told Daily Mirror that the Sri Lankan Government should engage with the European Court which de-proscribed the LTTE.
Mr. Daly had also told the MPs that the EU would lift the ban on the Sri Lankan fish exports if the government rectified the shortcomings pointed out by the EU.
The other MPs who met the officials were Ravi Karunanayake, Karu Jayasuriya and Mangala Samaraweera (Yohan Perera)
