At a media briefing here, Wickremesinghe said he held discussions with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi over a host of issues, such as their program of creating one million jobs over the next five years.

He said the issue of fishermen from India and Sri Lanka who often cross into each others’ territory was discussed and it will be concluded in a time-bound manner.

He said tourism as an area of operation was also discussed. The Sri Lankan prime minister, who is on a three-day India visit, said that by the mid of next year they will be able to draw conclusions to the issues discussed.

Our relationship “can go to newer heights”, he said.
