Discussions were held yesterday, (26th April) between India and Sri Lanka on how to check and combat the growing possibility of threats in South Asia from the so called Islamic State (IS)

The issue was discussed when Home Minister Rajnath Singh called on the visiting Prime Minister of Sri Lanka.

The home minister welcomed Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and emphasised on the need for close political ties between the two South Asian countries.

Both the leaders expressed concern over the growing ISIS threat and agreed that there should be continuous dialogue between the security organisations of the two countries to thwart any attempt by the terror outfit to destabilise the stability and peace in the region, an official statement said.
