Indian External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna today spoke to his Sri Lankan counterpart G.L. Peiris and hoped that Colombo will take all the necessary steps to release the arrested Indian fishermen.

“I am hopeful that the Sri Lankan government will take all the necessary steps to release all Indian fishermen,” Krishna told reporters here after telephonic conversation with Prof. Peiris.

“Both governments must sort out the issue amicably,” he said.

A total of 142 Indian fishermen have been arrested by the Sri Lankan Navy over the last few days for allegedly straying into the country's waters, creating a massive furore in Tamil Nadu. (IANS)

    He earlier asked us not to kill Indian fishermen come to SL water but to arrest them. So we did it. Accept the truth and stop them coming to our waters.

    Earelier Man Mohan asked to arrest the fishermen and not to kill them. Now he asks not to arrest them (but to kill them instead?).
