Sinhala nationalists oppose South African facilitation: Another foolish act

The government ally Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) has emphasised that the decision to bring in South Africa as a mediator for talks with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) is another foolish act of the government.
The deputy president of South Africa ,Cyril Ramaphosa, is to arrive in Sri Lanka in June to play the role of a third party in the particular talks.

JHU National Organizer and Western provincial councillor, Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe, who stated that Mr.Ramaphosa is known for his bias towards the LTTE and involving such an individual in the talks will be asking for trouble, stressed that his party completely opposes the particular decision of the government.
The government decision to adopt models of the South African Truth Commission cannot be approved under any circumstance and it is inappropriate for the reconciliation process in Sri Lanka, he said.
He further stated that it is distressing how the government is acting for the sake of it without any plans.
