India, Sri Lanka, Maldives to boost maritime security cooperation

New Delhi/Colombo : India, Sri Lanka and Maldives have agreed on a roadmap to boost cooperation in maritime security.

India's National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon visited Colombo July 8-9 to participate in trilateral discussions with the two island nations to address the common maritime challenges in the Indian Ocean region.

Following the meeting on Monday, the three sides agreed on a roadmap for future cooperation in maritime security.

In this context, they signed an Outcome Document outlining further collaborative measures in the areas of maritime domain awareness (MDA); strengthening coordination of maritime Search and Rescue (SAR); promoting marine oil pollution response cooperation; expanding 'DOSTI' (friendship) exercises; sharing of information on illegal maritime activities; and piracy, a statement said in New Delhi.
