Surface connectivity with India to get ground

The railway link between Colombo and Cochin and the Ferry Services between Colombo and Tuticorin to be resumed soon on priority basis.

This was discussed at the High Level Forum of the Asian Development Bank and a South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation meeting held in Manila, Philippines last week, External Affairs Ministry’s Additional Secretary Ranjith Uyangoda said.

With the cessation of the hostilities in Sri Lanka last year, the country is seeking to re-establish the surface connectivity with India. During President Mahinda Rajapaksa ‘s State visit to India in June 2010 too, there was a joint statement regarding the ferry service and railway lines to be restored, he said.

Both countries have recognized the need to establish the traditional links between India and Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka would welcome assistance and technical support from the ADB to implement these projects, he said.

Prime Minister’s Secretary Amarasekera and External Affairs Ministry’s Additional Secretary Ranjith Uyangoda attended the High Level Forum which concluded last Friday.
