Raymond Johansen, Norwegian Deputy Minister of
The Norwegian Government has maintained these contacts with the purpose of' assisting the parties in exploring the possibilities of' direct negotiations towards a solution to the ongoing conflict in Sri Lanka.
Based upon the above and the recent dialogue with Her Excellency the President and yourself, it is the opinion of the Norwegian Government that both the Government of Sri Lanka and the LT'TE are interested in establishing negotiations towards a political settlement to the conflict.
After careful analysis the Norwegian Government has found it appropriate to present a proposal to the Parties in the form of a Memorandum of' Understanding on Humanitarian Measures. If agreed upon and implemented by the Parties this will improve the humanitarian situation and ease the human sufferinging and hopefully contribute to creating an atmosphere conducive for negotiations.
