The Obama administration appears to be poised to take fresh initiatives to review relations with Sri Lanka. This is evident from the recommendations of the powerful bipartisan U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee headed by John F.

January 2006 Sri Lanka continued to be on the brink of return to civil war after many years of fractious peace. There were a number of attacks on the security forces allegedly by the LTTE, though the LTTE claimed that these were by vigilant groups raised by the government itself, a specious argument. However there was some mature statesmanship on the part of the newly elected President Rajpaksa who though stated to be a hard boiled Sinhala nationalist categorically ruled out a return to war in the near future. This paid rich dividends as the Norwegian intermediary Eric Solheim succeeded in arriving at an agreement between the recalcitrant LTTE and the Sri Lankan government to continue talks at Geneva by end February
As in previous years, terrorists staged hundreds of attacks on people and property in India . The most prominent terrorist groups were violent extremists operating in Jammu and Kashmir ; Maoists operating in the "Naxalite belt" in eastern, southern and central India ; and ethno-linguistic nationalists in India 's northeastern states. The federal and state governments tried various strategies to address some of these grievances within the context of Indian democracy, but the government was firm: groups must cease violence before negotiations can begin, and the government will not entertain territorial concessions.
