France strongly condemns the recent attack in Vishamadu that killed many civilians.

It is a particularly heinous act, as it targeted a rescue center for displaced persons. France expresses sincerest condolences to the victims’ families and loved-ones.

France remains very concerned by the fate of civilian populations in combat zones, and recalls that it is essential that the LTTE lay down its arms and that a political process be launched as soon as possible in order to establish peace and security for the benefit of all Sri Lankan people.
