Sri Lanka and India have inked their first bi-lateral civil nuclear agreement.

Following bilateral discussions on Monday (February 16th) with President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that India and Sri Lanka’s civil nuclear agreement was a sign of mutual trust between the two neighbors.

In the past, the two neighbors have had talks on a possible civil nuclear agreement but failed to reach any concrete understanding. Reuters also reported that Sri Lanka and India have decided to work towards resolving the contentious fishermen issue.

President Maithripala Sirisena speaking at the occasion noted that there is room to improve bilateral relations between the 2 countries specially in areas such as national development and cooperation in the international arena.

Sri Lanka and India also signed a slew of memorandums on agriculture, economic cooperation, cultural ties and connectivity.
