Bi-lateral dialogue on fishermen issue postponed indefinitely

The much awaited bilateral dialogue on the issue of fishermen between Sri Lanka and India due to be held on March 5 has been put off indefinitely. The talks were to focus on fishermen from both countries trespassing into each other’s territorial waters. Reports say the postponement was sequel to Sri Lanka’s request that the new government prioritises the 100 day program and therefor has no time to work on this right now.
