Norwegian Peace Envoy Erik Solheim is expected to visit Sri Lanka after the Sinhala and Tamil New Year. It would be Solheim’s third visit to the island this year.

When questioned when he would visit Sri Lanka next, Solheim said “No exact date for my visit is yet finalized. But, I intend to come some time after the Sinhala/Tamil New Year.”

Norwegian Peace Envoy, Solheim came to Sri Lanka first in January this year in the aftermath of the Tsunami with Norwegian Foreign Minister Jan Petersen and State Secretary Vidar Helgessen. During that visit Petersen met with LTTE leader Vellupillai Prabhakaran clearing all doubts that Prabhakaran was dead.

Solheim’s second visit took place in the last week of February. During that visit Solheim called on the Mahanayakes in Kandy. It was his first meeting with the Mahanayakes.

The details of Solheim’s next visit to the island is yet to be finalized. However, he is expected to have his usual meetings with the government and the LTTE though there is no progress in the stalled peace talks between the two parties.
