India and Sri Lanka have agreed to a slew of naval cooperation measures to target pirates and terrorist groups operating in the Indian ocean.

The measures were discussed during a meeting between Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and India’s National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon.

Indian government sources said Thursday’s meetings were focussed on pushing ahead military-to-military cooperation to secure both countries’ common security interests.

The two countries, along with the Maldives, had signed a security cooperation agreement in July this year, designed to make operations by the three navies seamless.
