"Don't trespass Lankan waters"- India warns

Friday, 01 May 2015 - 8:04

The Indian Central government categorically told Tamil Nadu fishermen not to fish in Sri Lankan waters by crossing the International Maritime Boundary Line.

Indian Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj told fisher leaders who met her in New Delhi that it was time the Indian fishermen stopped fishing on the Sri Lankan side.

Leader of a Rameswaram-based mechanised boat fishermen’s association said that if they do not fish across the boundary line, they cannot make their ends meet.

However, Minister Swaraj is said to have “categorically” stated that negotiating the release of arrested fishermen with the island nation was getting increasingly difficult, as Sri Lankan Tamil fishermen were badly hit by excessive trawling.
