Recently, a central advisory board on archaeology, functioning under the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), approved the project proposal submitted by more

Since this area stretches between two countries (India and Sri Lanka) and is owned by both countries it is politically very sensitive area  I think this study should be a joint venture .As the news item reveals the study is undertaken by India without consultation or collaboration with Sri Lanka. Therefore I  would like to draw the attention of Sri Lankan authorities  to get in touch with the Indian Government and get this project converted to a by partisan study  so that both countries can share the results and avoid any future possible  conflicts. A mono Indian research project will always come out with conclusions favorable to India and India will definitely use them in defeat any Sri Lankan claim in all International for The will not respect the Sri Lankan interests as they are doing presently with regard to fishing in this region Therefore Sri Lankan Government should intervene at the outset  to avoid  future conflicts.
