The 10-points agreed between the Pro-LTTE TNA and GTF by Foreign Minister, Mangala Samaraweera on behalf of present Prime Minister  a champion of Federalism in Sri Lanka Ranil Wickramasinghe at Singapore in 2013 is follows:

  1. In describing the nature of the State what is important is the substance; the labels are secondary.
  2. The Constitution shall be based on basic constitutional principles and values sovereignty of the people, participatory democracy and supremacy of the Constitution which shall form an unalterable basic structure.
  3. Power sharing shall be on the basis of self-rule and shared-rule within an undivided Sri Lanka. (Ranil and Mangala had already declared that they will give full autonomy to Northern and East under the 13 Amendment)
  4. The Executive Presidency shall be abolished and the form of government shall be Parliamentary. (The Executive presidency is the main obstruction to implementation of the Federalism for the TNA and Ranil)
  5. 5. The pluralist character of Sri Lankan society as well as identities and aspirations of the constituent peoples of Sri Lanka shall be constitutionally recognised. (This will dilute the identity of the majority Sinhala Buddhists from Sri Lanka)
  6. There shall be a strong and enforceable Bill of Rights consistent with universally accepted norms and standards.
  7. There shall be a separation of powers and an independence of judiciary which includes a Constitutional Court.

    Important institutions shall be independent and accountable. Appointments to these and High Posts shall be through a transparent mechanism that provides for a national consensus, example Constitutional Council.
  8. Institutions of the State shall reflect the pluralist character of Sri Lankan society. (This will dilute the identity of the majority Sinhala Buddhists from Sri Lanka)
  9. The Republic of Sri Lanka shall be a secular state. The Foremost place to Buddhism and equal status to other religions shall be assured. (This is an attempt to dilute the position of the Buddhism from Sri Lanka)

During the infamous Cease Fire Agreement, CFA period Ranil has agreed to create a Federal State in Sri Lanka. The agreement made by Ranil in the so called  Oslo Declaration of December 2002 follows:
Responding to a proposal by the leadership of the LTTE, the parties agreed to explore a solution founded on the principle of internal self-determination in areas of historical habitation of the Tamil-speaking peoples, based on a federal structure within a united Sri Lanka. The parties acknowledged that the solution has to be acceptable to all communities.

Mr Erik Solheim, facilitator of CFA confirmed that it was the UNP politician Mr Milinda Moragoda and himself, who were behind the drafting of what he termed as ‘Oslo Declaration’ in December 2002, which was signed by Mr Ranil Wickramasinge on behalf of the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) and by Mr Anton Balasingham on behalf of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).
