India and Sri Lanka on Saturday vowed to find a permanent solution to the vexed fishermen issue at the earliest. The two sides held ministerial-level talks on the issue during which various aspects related to it were discussed. the Times of India reported.

    Oops!!! Why still a "FISHERMEN ISSUE" despite being sold our country to INDIA? India must understand that no other leader in Sri Lanka had ever pleased India the way Maithree and Ranil do.

    Why to please India? Srilanka can keep fighting India just like how Pakistan try to keep their fight against India. Srilanka , under previous regime of MR followed right path and handed over H Tota port to China for good out of pocket expenses. The present govt is deviating this path and pleasing India. Very bad.
