Maldives' Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdulla Shahid revealed that Sri Lanka guaranteed that there would be no restrictions on Maldivian fish exports to the neighbouring country.

The foreign minister made the announcement following discussions with Sri Lanka's Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardena, Fisheries Minister Douglas Devananda and State Minister of Finance Ajith Nivard Cabraal.

In August, Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa announced intentions to halt the import of fish products as part of the measures to protect the country's domestic industries from foreign competition.
