Problems should be resolved diplomatically statement by Jayalalithaa


Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jayaram stated that a strong diplomatic measure should be taken to release the Indian fishermen arrested in Sri Lanka.

She requests to consider the issue of Indo-Lanka international maritime boundary Line as an unresolved issue.

According to the Chief Minister, the Kachchativu Islet, which was ceded to Sri Lanka through special agreements signed in 1974 and 1976, is a subject matter of
litigation at the Indian Supreme Court.

She further states that Sri Lanka’s northern sea belt which is invaded by the Indian fishermen has been a traditional fishing ground for the Indian fishermen.
