A delegation led by Sri Lanka Coast Guard Chief Rear Admiral AARA Dias, who is on a visit here from 26-30 August, held a meeting with his Indian counterpart Vice Admiral MP Muralidharan, a Defence Ministry statement said.
The visit is in continuation of the various efforts by the governments of the two countries towards cooperation between the two coast guards and pursuance of discussions on maritime issues of mutual concern, it said.
The focus of the meeting was on further strengthening the operational level interaction between the two Coast Guards, it said.
"During the discussions, it was mutually agreed to strengthen the cooperation on evolving a collaborative approach in addressing a spectrum of maritime issues concerning safety and security," the release said.
In recent times, there had been a series of reports of attacks on Indian fishermen by Sri Lankan Navy.
The visit will give a fresh impetus to existing ties between the two organisations as the meeting is being held in the backdrop of the evolving maritime security situation in the region, the release said.
