Ranil invites Tamils to discuss ethnic issues

Wickremesinghe, who returned to Sri Lanka earlier in the day, made the appeal in Parliament, the media reported.

Colombo: Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe on Thursday invited Tamil political parties to a discussion on issues facing the Tamil minority in the island nation.

Wickremesinghe, who returned to Sri Lanka earlier in the day, made the appeal in Parliament, the media reported.

The President, a member of the dominant Sinhalese community, said he wanted all Tamil political parties to come for talks next week to discuss issues facing the Tamils and to resolve these amicably without outside interference.

The Sinhalese-dominated military crushed a long-running Tamil separatist campaign in May 2009. But the war left tens of thousands of innocent civilians killing, triggering anger in the Tamil community.
