India and Sri Lanka will hold a dialogue on how to check the growing threat of the Islamic State in South Asia and any attempt by the terror outfit to destabilise the region, the Press Trust of India reported.
The issue was discussed when India’s Home Minister Rajnath Singh called on visiting Prime Minister of Sri Lanka Ranil Wickremesinghe in New Delhi.
The Home Minister welcomed the Sri Lankan prime minister and emphasised on the close political ties between the two countries.
Both the leaders expressed concern over the growing ISIS threat and agreed that there should be a continuous dialogue between the security organisations of the two countries to thwart any attempt by the terror outfit to destabilise the stability and peace in the region, an official statement said.
The issues concerning the fishermen who inadvertently cross the international maritime boundary line were also discussed and it was felt that the same should be resolved at the earliest with no more loss of lives, it said. (Colombo Gazette)
