Velupillai Prabhakaran, the Tamil Tiger leader, addresses a press conference in Kilinochchi, Sri Lanka. The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam have been fighting Sri Lankan forces to create a separate homeland in northern and eastern Sri Lanka since 1983, with more than 64,000 lives lost so far. The rebel leader said that LTTE would not participate in the planned peace talks unless the ban on them is lifted.

Sri Lankan President Chandrika Kumaratunga opposed a government move to lift a four-year ban on the Tamil Tiger rebels to facilitate peace talks. It was not clear whether Kumaratunga's position would affect the talks aimed at ending the country's 19-year separatist war.
