Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday said Iran has released 15 Indian fishermen who were detained with their Bahraini boats last year. “I am happy to inform that Iran has released our 15 fishermen from Tamil Nadu,” she said, the Indian Express reported. “They were detained with their three Bahraini boats,” Swaraj said in a tweet. She also thanked the Indian Embassy in Tehran, appreciating their “good work” for facilitating the release. The fishermen, working for some Bahrainis, were detained for entering the Iranian waters without permission. They were said to be confined to their boats since their arrest on September 22. Tehran and New Delhi have amicable diplomatic relations, which paved the way for the resolution of mishaps such as the latest incident.
