Tamil fishermen in Sri Lankan jails would be the main agenda in the upcoming talks between the two countries’ fishermen representatives.

National Fish Workers Federation met Dr Subramanian Swamy in Chennai and gave him a memorandum, urging him to take up the Tamil fishermen issue and get them released.

Dr Swamy is to visit Sri Lanka on an invitation from the Sri Lankan government.

Union External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid told that the bilateral talks would be held in Chennai on January 20, and the CM of Tamil Nadu had given consent.

307 Tamil fishermen are in Sri Lankan prisons and 88 boats have been seized.
