India wary of China’s increasing role in Lanka

The growing influence of China in Sri Lanka, which may upset New Delhi’s geo-political interests in South Asia, appears to have compelled the South Block weigh the pros and cons of removing restrictions on arms sales to the island nation. Official sources said the enhancement of defence ties between India and Sri Lanka figured in talks between the two sides during the recent visit of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa to New Delhi. “Both leaders agreed to promote dialogue on security and defence issues of relevance to their bilateral relationship, and enhance high-level military exchanges and training of military personnel as well as impart additional training in Indian institutions for the newly recruited police personnel.

PLA is making everyone nervous.

Chinese intention in Sir Lanka: unknown.*

* Intentional ambiguity, of course.

I BELIEVE SRILANKA IS AN INDEPENDENT COUNTRY OR INDIA THINK THAT IT IS A ONE OF ITS STATES.

india should consider their own business. We dont want India to put finger on our and chinese relationship. As a sri lankan and also most of sri lankan consider china is a our true friend not like indians. we do what ever we want with bilaterally with china. in the simple words we hate indians. u got to hell, mind ur own business. we mind our business.
