Tamil rebel chief Velupillai Prabhakaran today declared that his movement wishes to renew good relations with India and called countries that have banned the movement to lift the ban.

The LTTE chief in his annual address to mark the Heroes day said during the struggle of the LTTE it has never planned to act against any country.

He said the LTTE has never stood in the way of the national, geopolitical, or economic welfare of any other country and added that the profound aspirations of the Tamil people too are not harmful to the welfare of any country or its people.

He said that though the LTTE adopted the armed struggle, it has always wished to solve the Tamil national problem through peaceful means. He said, “We have never been against adopting peaceful means and we have never hesitated to take part in peace talks.”

He said that trials and tribulations that LTTE faces now are neither new nor insurmountable to the movement and expressed confidence that the challenges will be defeated with the overwhelming strength of the people..
