UN Food Aid Chief Meets Sri Lanka's Tamil Tiger Leader

  • VOA News

The chief of the United Nations World Food Program says his agency is providing food to tens of thousands of tsunami-affected people in rebel-held areas of Sri Lanka. James Morris made the comment on Sunday after talks with the leader of the Tamil Tiger's political wing, S.P. Thamilselvan, in the eastern city of Kilinochchi. Mr. Morris said his visit to the rebel-controlled town was very important because it demonstrates that the U.N. agency is solely focused on humanitarian issues and not politics. He added the agency has enough food to feed two million disaster victims for six months. Mr. Morris' visit was initially blocked by the Sri Lankan government, apparently for security reasons, but Colombo later reversed its decision.
