India and Sri Lanka have agreed to set up a Joint Working Group on Fisheries and a hotline between their Coast Guards to address the long-standing issue of fishermen from Tamil Nadu being arrested.

The decision, taken during talks between Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera in New Delhi, came three days after fishermen of both countries failed to reach an agreement on ending fishing in Sri Lankan waters by Indian fishermen.

It was also decided that the Joint Working Group would meet every three months while the Ministers of Fisheries on both sides would meet every six months beginning January 2017 along with Coast Guard and Naval representatives to discuss the issue.
