Wed, Apr 16, 2014, 10:01 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 16, Colombo: The government of Sri Lanka says it is open for discussion with the organizations that were recently proscribed for allegedly having links with the LTTE.

The government recently proscribed several Tamil Diaspora organizations as 'foreign terrorist' entities and Cabinet Spokesperson Minister Keheliya Rambukwella has told the media that the government is open for discussions with the organizations.

"If they want, we are open for discussions. We haven't called them. It's their call. They can request for talks and explain their position," the Minister has told an English daily.

He has explained that banning or proscribing the organizations did not mean the government is taking revenge on them.

According to Rambukwella, such a move in fact leads to a dialogue.
