The two day international conclave ‘The Indian Ocean – Defining Our Future’ was held at the Temple Trees yesterday. The forum would focus on the Indian Ocean sea-lanes which had become the major arteries of East-West trade, connecting East and Southeast Asia via South Asia to East Africa, the Middle East and Europe. Foreign Affairs Minister Tilak Marapana welcomed the participants. Special UN envoy Peter Thomson and Dr. Ganeshan Wignaraja addressed the gathering. President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, Opposition Leader R. Sampanthan and Speaker Karu Jayasuriya also graced the occasion. Pix by Presidents’ Media

    Sri Lanka must join all other countries in the region outside India to make every effort to change the name Indian Ocean.None of the other oceans have their names associated with the name of any country.

    You are absolutely right. This name makes all other countries in the region to feel as if we are living in the Indian territory.
