US envoy Alaina Teplitz calls on Opposition Leader 700 01

US Envoy to Sri Lanka, Alaina B. Teplitz met with Opposition Leader R.Samapnthan on Tuesday and held talks on the current political issues. Sampanthan pointed out that the removal of Premier Wickremasinghe was unconstitutional. US Envoy Alaina Teplitz urged that democratic traditions be protected.

Along with Ambassador Alaina Teplitz Deputy Chief of Mission Robert Hilton and the Political Section Chief Anthony Renzulli were also present at the meeting. The meeting lasted approximately for an hour.

Tamil National Alliance has in a statement observed that Sampanthan briefed her on the present situation in the country and stated that the events that had taken place in the past week in removing the prime minister are unconstitutional. He added that proroguing Parliament for a longer period is only paving the way to legitimize what had been done in an undemocratic manner by offering various benefits to those who want to shift sides. He had already written to the Speaker to take steps to reconvene Parliament.

He reiterated that a genuine and acceptable political resolution to the Tamil question within an undivided and indivisible Sri Lanka is a must and the country will not overcome any of its problems until such a solution is achieved.
