Wed, May 25, 2022, 11:06 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 25, Colombo: Sri Lanka Navy and the Indian Coast Guard have implemented a joint program to prevent illegal activities in the Northern Seas, according to a report.

Security has been beefed up by the Sri Lanka Navy in the seas from Talaimannar to Kankesanthurai in Sri Lanka. The Indian Coast Guard has stepped up security in the southern and western coastal areas of Tamil Nadu.

Another objective is to prevent the entry of illegal immigrants from Sri Lanka to India. Both countries have decided to tighten security due to the recent increase in certain activities, including drug trafficking and illicit trade.

The joint program will also help alleviate fisheries issues between the two countries. The Indian Coast Guard has also taken steps to build a security fence in the Palk Strait.
