Sri Lanka's Tamil Tiger rebels on Tuesday agreed to unconditional talks with the government, but warned they will pull out of a 2002 cease-fire if the government persists with its military campaign, a spokesman said.I guess the government attacks are working.
"We have said that we are ready for talks. We have not placed any conditions and neither has the government," rebel spokesman, Daya Master, told The Associated Press.
He was speaking after Norway's peace envoy, Jon Hanssen-Bauer, met with the head of the rebels' political wing, Suppiah Thamilselvan, to press for an end to months of recent bloodshed and a return to talks, suspended since February.
"But Mr. Thamilselvan said one thing, that we will totally pull out of the cease-fire if the government continues to attack us," Master said.
