NEW DELHI: India has agreed to release 85 Sri Lankan fishermen who are lodged in different jails in Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. This was conveyed to Sri Lanka president Mahinda Rajapaksa when he met Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Tuesday morning. In a good will gesture, the Sri Lankan government had released all the Indian fishermen in their custody before Rajapaksa's visit.

The key issues of rehabilitation and reconstruction and the 13th amendment was the subject of conversation between the two leaders. "He (Modi) requested the government of Sri Lanka to expedite the process of national reconciliation in a manner that meets the aspirations of the Tamil community for a life of equality, justice, peace and dignity in a united Sri Lanka," Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh recounted later.

The conversation covered areas of crucial security cooperation between Sri Lanka and India. The two countries, along with Maldives form a trilateral grouping on security and intelligence in the Indian Ocean, a move that sources say, has been very successful. The trio recently invited Mauritius to join the grouping.

While Rajapaksa could not bring the chief minister of Northern Provinces, Vigneswaran with him. He did bring along Jaffna's Tamil Mayor Yogeshwari Pathkunarajah to Monday's ceremonyat the oath taking ceremony of Narendra Modi as India's prime minister Monday. (Times of India)

    Amara Wednesday, 28 May 2014 11:40 PM

    Modi will send a army and give eelam. tamils in Colombo will have to leave

    Rationalist Wednesday, 28 May 2014 06:49 AM

    If the Sri Lankan fishermen were arrested in Northern Waters, wouldn't they have been Tamil Fishermen?
    What did Jayalalitha do about that?

    AIA Wednesday, 28 May 2014 06:51 AM

    Certainly Rajapakse has scored a diplomatic victory here. Modi didnt care two hoots the cheap political campaign of the Tamil Nadu politicos

    Nihal Amarasekera Wednesday, 28 May 2014 06:58 AM

    The million dollar question is what they mean by aspirations of the Tamil community. Aspirations of the normal Tamil citizenry or Diaspora instigated Tamil Politician's. Equality, justice, peace and dignity all well accepted.

    Alternatively they could annex North-East to India after having a referendum like in crimea.

    Sri Lanka can not protect Tamils rather Tamils need to be protected from Sri Lanka. Modi is aware of this. And hope he will take care of this.

    ind Wednesday, 28 May 2014 07:28 AM

    Now Tamils are safe without LTTE.

    Karigalan Wednesday, 28 May 2014 07:31 AM

    5 for 85 good deal

    hope new leader will bring peace to SL

    But issue is MR talk 13 plus outside SL only

    SAM_SPARROW Thursday, 29 May 2014 11:30 AM

    Then you all go to China

    Chatura Wednesday, 28 May 2014 01:34 PM

    Sri Lankan Tamils no need any assurance from India as long as they believe they are Sri Lankans. If they ready to believe and act like true Sri Lankan GOSL may not hesitate to fully implement 13th amendment. They have to prove that they are not looking for a eelam. We need unity thats why we request all Sinhala Tamil and Muslims to behave as Sri Lankan. But Mr. Vignashvaran clearly told that though people keep telling we all Sri Lankans they are not ready to accept that. Thats why they need Indian backing. They havent change the objective they insist for eelam sooner or later. its Tamils move to show the commitment towards united Sri Lanka. via DM Android App

    You are wrong. Tamil are now slaves without LTTE

    npj Wednesday, 28 May 2014 08:18 AM

    As he goes on his popularity will go down then then he will realize how important TN is. So some tangible action has to be taken sooner rather than latter.

    SAM_SPARROW Wednesday, 28 May 2014 08:23 AM

    Modi rocks. All Sri Lankan Tamils with him

    Chanakya Wednesday, 28 May 2014 01:53 PM

    Modi is a task master and is well known for follow up action. What we did with Manmohanji will not work with him. via DM iPad app

    sobers Wednesday, 28 May 2014 08:30 AM

    Tamils don't need EELAM at all, they want to live with dignity, respect and justice prevailing.

    mohamed asfar Friday, 30 May 2014 04:49 AM

    the irony is no one understands that indian politicians talk about tamils only during elections.

    Suq Madique Thursday, 29 May 2014 03:44 AM

    Then they all should go live in India

    Jacoobie Thursday, 29 May 2014 03:47 AM

    [quote name="Amara"]Modi will send a army and give eelam. tamils in Colombo will have to leave[/quote]
    CAN'T THEY CONTINUE TO LIVE AS FOREIGNERS JUST LIKE THE CHINESES AND OTHERS ??
