While claiming that Union government had initiated talks with the Sri Lankan High Commission to secure the release of 49 Indian fishermen, who were arrested by Sri Lanka, the Indian government today expressed hope that the Sri Lankan government will cooperate with it, the PTI reported.

Minister of State in the Prime Minister Office V Narayanaswamy said, “Foreign Minister Salman Kurshid has also taken steps to secure their release and we hope the Sri Lankan Government will cooperate.”

He said the Indian Navy and Coast Guard had stepped up patrolling near the International Maritime Boundary Line to prevent Indian fishermen being arrested by the Lankan Navy.

He also suggested that fishermen of the two countries initiate talks to find a permanent solution to the problem.

On Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa's persistent demand for retrieving Katchatheevu from Sri Lanka, he said the Prime Minister will take suitable action on the demand.

    India should not allow their fishermen to cross to our waters, they are NOT doing that

    Its become such a joke. Their fishermen encroach into our waters and get arrested and then the Centre intervenes to get them released. India should look at reprimanding their fishermen instead of castigating our Navy and Courts for doing their job

    Even SL killed allot of Sri Lankan fishermen previous week. You think they will care about Indian fisher men!

    Are you now begging SL? Your government is always begging for votes. But this time, TN people are aware of your cunning foreign policies. Even if you win the election and form the central government, you cannot stop the TN people's revolution until you cut the tie with SL.
