The proscription of the LTTE within the United States will continue to be enforced. The US State Department said that the US Government has opted to further extend the LTTE ban in the country. Diplomatic sources said that the US Government had taken this decision as the LTTE was still engaged in a weapons racket in the world. A latest report issued by the US State Department said that the US Government would also extend support to uproot terrorism from the world.
In the meantime, the State Department said the US accepted the LTTE as a terrorist outfit. At the same time a special programme is in place to contain financial rackets of the terrorists. Diplomatic sources further said that international banks and financial agencies were to be appraised about these LTTE financial rackets.
