The India-Sri Lanka Joint Commission (ISLJC) welcomed the finalisation of an agreement to resume ferry services between Colombo and Thoothukudi and Talaimannar and Rameswaram. The ISLJC noted that while an MoU on cooperation in the field of tourism was signed in January 2004, the Joint Working Group for the same was yet to meet. The officials on both sides were told to meet at an early date to identify potential areas of co-operation. The ISLJC noted the interest of SL Airlines in operating more services to Chennai and New Delhi. Both S M Krishna and G L Peiris expressed satisfaction that fishing arrangements agreed earlier had helped decrease incidents on the International Maritime Boundary Line. Both sides welcomed the decision to revive the meetings of the Joint Working Group on Fishing.
