State Minister of Urban Development, Coast Conservation, Waste Disposal, and Public Sanitation Dr. Nalaka Godahewa told Daily Mirror that discussions are still ongoing to make an interim claim. 

He said that the Attorney General is to meet the stakeholders tomorrow (03rd of June) to reach a conclusion on the claim.
