Jayalalithaa wants fishermen’s talks on 20th January

JayaJaya has said that her government will facilitate more help to the Centre extend talks between Indian and Sri Lankan fishermen in Chennai on January 20 to resolve the dispute over fishing rights in each other’s territorial waters.

The frequent arrests of Tamil fishermen by Sri Lankan navy for maritime violations has been a very big matter between the Centre and the state and threatens to strain Indo-Lanka relations.

She also sent letter to PM Manmohan Singh and asked the Centre to take steps to seek the release of fishermen arrested by the Lankan Army.
