Dec 19, 2010 4:26:31 AM - itnnews.lk

Sri Lankan and Indian Navies are planning a joint operation to crackdown on narcotics trafficking.

There are reports that smuggling of narcotics was rampant in countries such as Australia, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Singapore via the Indian Ocean. The Sri Lankan Naval Headquarters said that plans are in place to stage joint operations teaming up with their Indian counterparts. This agreement was reached as a result of discussions the Indian Naval Chief had with his Sri Lankan counterpart during his visit to the island to participate in the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of the Sri Lanka Navy.
