Thimphu (Agencies): Expected to convey concerns over fishermen killing by Lankan Navy, External Affairs Minister SM Krishna is set to meet his counterpart GL Peiris at the SAARC Foreign Ministers’ conference on Tuesday.

TS Tirumurti, Joint Secretary in the External Affairs Ministry who deals with Sri Lankan issues, is also expected to arrive for the meeting, the sources said.

During the meeting, Krishna is expected to raise the issue of the recent incidents in which some fishermen were allegedly killed by Sri Lankan Navy and convey India's concerns, the sources said.

He is also likely to seek an update on the investigation ordered by the Sri Lankan government into these incidents in which the Lankan Navy had denied its involvement.

The two leaders are expected to discuss steps to resolve issues related to the fishermen, who are allegedly fired upon and killed when they trespass into Sri Lankan territorial waters.

Last week, Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao went to Colombo to convey India's concerns to President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
