Local Northern Province Fishermen Associations have rejected Indian Fishermen Associations’ request to discuss methods to resolve the long lasting fishermen issue.

The representatives of Indian Fishermen Associations had requested local fishermen organisations to hold a discussion over the allegations that the Indian fishermen poached in Sri Lankan waters using trawler vessels.

The Consultant of the Lankan Fishermen Association Vinayagamurthi Sahadevan had told media that they didn’t believe in a proper solution for the problem by discussing it with the ordinary fishermen associations since discussions held between Sri Lankan and Indian Prime Ministers on the issue had concluded without any proper solution.

“At least there should be groups of government representatives from both sides in holding such discussion, so that the integrity and legality are protected. Otherwise, we are not willing to hold any discussion with their organisations,” he said. (Romesh Madushanka)

    yes they have done the right thing. no point of talking with people who don't understand the sovereignty of a country. in previous discussions they asked access to fish in sri Lankan waters. nothing we get discussing this with them. i think this discussion should be done in a higher level with higher authorities.

    What is there to discuss?

    Jaffna fishermen say nowadays our Navy is helplessly watching when poachers enter our sea. We should never surrender our sovereignty in the name of diplomacy.
