Northern fishermen society representatives to hold talks with Indian counterparts

[TamilNet, Thursday, 08 July 2010, 07:25 GMT]
Representatives of fishermen societies from the districts of Jaffna and Mannar decided in a meeting held in Vavuniyaa Wednesday to send a group of fishermen society representatives to India in August to hold talks with the representatives of fishermen societies in South India to stop Indian fishermen encroaching the northern seas in Sri Lanka, sources in Vavuniyaa said. The issue of Indian fishermen attacking northern fishermen is also to be discussed in the talks, the sources added.

A group of representatives of fishermen societies in India was to come to the North last year to hold talks on the above issue but the visit was abandoned as India refused permission them to visit Jaffna.
