26-fold increase to SL’s territorial sea area

The United Nations has agreed to add a territorial expanse amounting to 26 times of the country’s land extent to the sea area surrounding Sri Lanka, Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said.

Sri Lanka is eligible under the Law of Sea to own this sea area because of the narrow and shallow strip of the sea located between Sri Lanka and India.
