The Japanese government is considering providing patrol ships to Sri Lanka to help the South Asian country strengthen its maritime surveillance capabilities.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is expected to convey the plan to President Mahinda Rajapaksa when he visits the country in early September.

Tokyo expects the move to help improve sea lane security in the Indian Ocean where tankers transporting oil from the Middle East to Japan travel.
