    The statement of the Tokyo Co-Chairs, though late, is a welcome move that has to be accepted by all concerned

    As a First Step the Tokyo Co-Chairs must press for the urgent passage of a resolution in the UN for the immediate ceasefire in Sri Lanka and to establish and maintain a UN force in the conflict area to oversee the implementation of the said resolution.

    Secondly, all those within the present conflict area together with all those IDP’s now in the detention and or refugee camps maintained by the Sri Lankan Government to be taken back to the conflict area under UN care and custody.

    Third: Action must be taken for the establishment of a Peace Council comprising of an equal number of persons from each ethnicity in the country drawn from the civil society organizations and political parties with the Co-Chairs (or better by countries not involved like South Africa, Mexico, East Timor and with persons like Nelson Mandela) chairing the Peace Council to discuss and formulate a system of governance addressing all the causes that led to the present situation and arrive at a formula where members of all ethnicity would be represented in the government. The South African constitution may be taken as an example. The discussions should take place ON WARTIME-FOOTING so as to arrive at an early solution.

    The UN force must be present in the country until the full implementation of the solution arrived in the Peace Council.

    “People who value democracy, equality and equity, needs to pressure the Sri Lankan state to take immediate action towards a meaningful and just power sharing arrangement. That is the only way to ensure security and the dignity of the peoples of Sri Lanka.
    If peaceful coexistence through power sharing is not achievable, the only other solution that would be available will be secession.” so said Mr.Lionel Bopage, former Secretary of the original JVP of Sri Lanka.
