India, Sri Lanka and Maldives will soon sign a trilateral agreement on maritime cooperation to pool resources and share data in the region for better control over the territorial waters, and detect suspicious movements.

Revealing this at the maritime security seminar, Galle Dialogue, Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa said that Sri Lanka, India and the Maldives have recently been working on a trilateral agreement for cooperation in carrying out surveillance, anti piracy operations and in curbing illegal activities including maritime pollution.

The Defence Secretary stated that meetings have already been held at the Ministerial level and at the technical level.

He expressed confidence that multilateral agreements of this nature will be greatly instrumental in curbing many of the issues that the naval powers in the region face.
