Navy to get more ships from India to enhance maritime security

Sri Lanka’s new Navy Commander Vice Admiral Travis Sinniah said he hopes to get more vessels in order to increase the security in the seas surrounding the country.

Speaking to media after paying homage to the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy and meeting with the Chief Prelates of Malwatte and Asgiriya chapters on Friday, the new Navy Commander said he will implement a new program to prevent Indian fishermen encroaching the Sri Lankan marine waters.

Vice Admiral Sinniah said the Navy will be receiving another ship from India in February. The Navy is to receive another three vessels next year and hopes to purchase two more vessels to enhance the security in the sea areas.
