[TamilNet, Friday, 17 April 2009 18:50 No Comment]

"The Sri Lankan State’s actions establish beyond a shadow of doubt, that the real intention of the Sri Lankan State is the progressive extermination of the Tamil people," said the statement published by the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) in India on Friday. "The fact that the Sri Lankan State and its Armed forces despite the widest possible international outcry that the safety of Tamil civilians is paramount, have not been deterred even to the slightest degree, in the pursuit of their military attacks in Tamil civilian populated areas, without any regard whatever, for the safety of Tamil civilians, is indicative of the deep hostility that the Sri Lankan State and its Armed forces bear towards the Tamil people," the statement issued by the TNA further said.

The concerns expressed by civil society activists lead to the legitimate fear that could be annihilation of surviving Tamil civilian population through the use of weapons of mass killings, the TNA statement said.
A cessation of all military attacks is brought about in the No Fire Zone as the only definitive way to ensure the right to life of the substantial number of Tamil civilians living in the NFZ, the TNA said.

The statement was signed by R. Sampanthan, the parliamentary group leader of the TNA, M. Senathiraja, the general secretary, K. S. Premachandran, general secretary of the EPRLF and Selvam A. Adaikkalanathan, president of TELO.
