US push to Lanka talks

Colombo, May 12 (Reuters): The US stepped up efforts today to try to put back in motion Sri Lanka’s stalled peace process to end two decades of war.

US assistant secretary of state Christina Rocca held talks with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and was also to meet President Chandrika Kumaratunga.

They were to discuss the peace process that has been on hold since the LTTE suspended talks last month, alleging a lack of progress in rebuilding war-hit Tamil areas.
