holding answer 15 June 2011

The UK supports the dialogue between the Sri Lankan Government and Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and we have encouraged both sides to engage constructively. During my visit to Sri Lanka in February, I met members of the TNA and discussed progress with them and separately with the Sri Lankan Foreign Minister. The most recent talks were held on 12 May and we understand a further round of talks will take place on 23 June.
