COLOMBO (Kyodo) Japanese Ambassador to Sri Lanka Akio Suda urged the Sri Lankan government and the Tamil Tiger rebels to take a more practical approach to the peace process “rather than tirelessly arguing on a formula or conditions.”

Suda, speaking Thursday at his residence, also warned that Sri Lanka should not take hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign aid for granted and made clear that future aid will depend on the government rectifying policy inconsistencies and reform delays.
