The Sri Lankan PM reiterated his position that his government cannot do anything about Articles 1 and 3 of the cease fire agreement now.

Prime Minister Wickremesinghe said last week that some clauses of the CFA had become invalid after the President took over the ministries of defence and interior from him, referring to Articles 1 and 3 of the CFA.

He said the peace process was a people's peace process. Therefore the people should come foward to protect it, the PM urged.
