Sri Lanka: June 5, 2000


India and Sri Lanka are discussing the idea of joint naval patrols to keep the LTTE from smuggling weapons across the Straits.

If India does not support the Sri Lankan government, however, it could lose credibility in its efforts to maintain control over Kashmir.--Stephen V Cole
