Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne claims that the LTTE International Network is still operative. He made this claim moving a resolution in Parliament to extend the emergency by a further month.
The Prime Minster said the LTTE was attempting to revive within Sri Lanka and spread the Eelam concept among the Sri Lankan Tamils. LTTE loyalists and extremist organizations such as the Global Tamil Forum and the British Tamil Forum under guise of human rights are frequently discussing with representatives of some countries. As such, the Prime Minister mentioned with responsibility that as a democratic country, Sri Lanka will not hesitate to take all possible measures for national security and prevent a revival of terrorism within the island.
