India and Sri Lanka are strategically located at a crossroads within the Indian Ocean; a body of water 68.5 million sq. km in extent and the third largest of the world’s oceans, after the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Their unique location provides ample opportunities for the two South Asian neighbours to embark upon a cooperative approach in joint sea exploration. India has a vast costal line of more than 7517 km, with Sri Lanka adding its coastline of 1340 km. The prospect becomes still more impressive, if the Maldives is included in the concept of joint exploration of their combined wealth of sea resources. However, it is not quite clear if Maldives is yet ready to fully join a broad based cooperative venture in a tri-lateral format for a variety of reasons, although as elaborated in the later part of this paper, it has been part of the ongoing negotiations and discussions on certain aspects of the agenda.
