Colombo, Aug 24: LTTE chief Kumaran Pathmanathan in an interrogation revealed that there were efforts to collect nuclear weapons from western countries against the Sri Lankan Army.
“Pathmanathan has revealed that the arms purchased with the money collected were shipped to the LTTE. How he purchased anti-aircraft missiles from arms dealers in the USA has been disclosed," the newspaper said.
However, a cabinet minister in the Sri Lankan government, Karuna Amman said it would not be easy to find a successor to Pathmanathan.
“They (LTTE) can't do anything because all international networks were controlled by KP himself," Amman said.
