EU Foreign Ministers – Call to end Sri Lanka fighting

April 27, 2009

Foreign Affairs Minister Micheal Martin called for a swift end to fighting in Sri Lanka as he prepared for a meeting of EU Foreign Ministers in Luxembourg.

Ireland has pledged 170,000 euro in emergency funding and Mr Martin said tens of thousands of lives are at risk in what he dubbed the humanitarian catastrophe.

Since Monday more than 100,000 people have fled the northern coastal strip still held by the Tamil Tiger rebels as the Sri Lankan military continues its offensive to destroy the group and end the island’s long-running civil war.
