The US “gravely concerned” about ceasefire agreement violations in Sri Lanka over last few days. “The United States remains gravely concerned about persistent violations of the Ceasefire Agreement, particularly over the past few weeks,” said a statement issued on Monday, by Adam Ereli, Deputy Spokesman, US Department of State, Washington DC.

“We condemn the December 4, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) attack in Jaffna on a Sri Lankan army vehicle that caused the deaths of seven soldiers. Such violence is inconsistent with LTTE claims to be committed to the peace processes,” it said.

“We call on both the Government of Sri Lanka and the LTTE to take immediate action to prevent violence and to uphold the terms of the Ceasefire Agreement,” said the statement.
