By Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, Prime Minister, TGTE, January 01, 2013 - NEW YEAR SHOULD BE CRITICAL YEAR OF CHANGES IN THE FREEDOM STRUGGLE! SRI LANKA TO BE ISOLATED FURTHER IN THE INTERNATIONAL ARENA!! -- I wish to reiterate on this New Year day the same message I gave out on the 2002 Martyrs Day, namely, that the two state solution will be eminently compatible with the interests of the international States, and one that will be conducive to the interests of the Sinhala people also. Such a two state solution is not at all contrary to the interests of the West, India or any other State. It is in fact compatible with the interests of all those States. With the aims of strengthening the justifications for the two state solution, mobilizing the Tamils around the globe towards building up the soft power of the Eelam Tamil Nation, and formulating the strategies of the Tamil Eelam struggle in juxtaposition with the evolving geopolitical situation in the Indian ocean, the TGTE is organizing an international conference in the US on May 9-11, 2013.

TGTE, 20 June 2012 - The United Nations and its members have a moral and legal responsibility to protect and ensure that captured LTTE members be treated according to the Geneva Convention Relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War. They along with the international community have an obligation to uphold the very laws they created 60 years ago.
