In a message e-mailed to Guwahati-based mediapersons, the banned outfit's chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa called for immediate suspension of trade with Bhutan and severance of ties till the Royal Bhutan Army stopped all operations. "The Bhutanese who have now become our enemy's friend and an enemy of the Assamese, Bodos and Kamtapuris. The operations have destroyed the age-old ties that existed between the people of the Northeast and Bhutan,"

The ULFA leader also claimed, "It is known to all that it is a joint operation of the Indian Army and Royal Bhutan army."

He alleged that the 'norms of the Geneva Convention have been blatantly violated during the operations and even innocent women and children have not been spared'.

He denied 500 ULFA militants have so far surrendered before Bhutanese authorities and asked that they be produced before the media to verify this claim.
