SL- Indian joint naval exercises to continue

 

 
The Indian defence ministry has asked the Indian Navy to hold joint exercises with Sri Lankan Navy in future away from four southern states.
 
The Indian navy has so far held two exercises under code name ‘SLINEX’ and the last edition was held along the coast of Trincomalee in September, 2011 after the first in 2005.
 
"The Indian defence ministry has advised us to hold the SLINEX-series exercises with our Sri Lankan counterparts away from the coasts of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Karnataka," a Navy official told PTI in New Delhi.
 
The defence ministry has issued the advisory probably keeping in mind the sensitivities involved in the whole episode, he said.
 
The navy is planning to hold this edition of the ‘SLINEX’ in the near future and it would be held in Indian waters this time, sources said.
 
Political parties in Tamil Nadu have been protesting against having any defence ties with Sri Lanka.
