Sri Lanka is going to take big steps against China for the sake of India

Neighboring country Sri Lanka is going to take a big decision in the interest of India while giving a big blow to China. Sri Lanka is reportedly going to impose a 12-month ban on the operation of foreign spy ships in its maritime zones. This means that China's research and spy ships can no longer stop at Sri Lankan ports like before. The report said that Sri Lanka is taking this decision to stop Chinese research and spy ships from stopping at its ports. Let us tell you that while talking to the local media, a senior minister of Sri Lanka has said that, 'The government is considering a one-year ban on foreign research vessels in Sri Lankan waters or its Exclusive Economic Zone. '

The Sri Lankan minister has further said in this context that, 'The arrival of these ships creates serious diplomatic tension. Elections (Sri Lankan presidential elections) are also going to be held in 2024. The arrival of such ships could be extremely disruptive for the region and Sri Lanka, as the government could come under pressure. Therefore, we are considering that these are going to be banned for a year or more.

Sri Lanka will take a decision against China after India's objection: According to the information received so far, China is planning to dock its Marine Scientific Research (MSR) ship, Jiang Yang Hong 3, at Sri Lankan ports by the beginning of 2024. India had raised objection regarding this, in view of which the Sri Lankan side has taken this decision. But reports say that Sri Lanka is avoiding pleasing or angering both India and China before the 2024 presidential elections.

The country's Foreign Minister Ali Sabri has said that Sri Lanka is going to develop its marine research capabilities for the next 12 months so that it can participate as an equal partner in future foreign research expeditions. Sri Lankan news outlet Daily Mirror quoted him as saying, 'We will develop our capacity for 12 months so that we can participate equally in foreign research activities.'

A Chinese ship had stopped at a Sri Lankan port in October itself: In October this year, Sri Lanka had given permission to a Chinese exploration ship Shi Yan 6 to stop at one of its ports and conduct research. China makes extensive use of such research ships, which are called spy ships. Through these ships, China spies on strategic installations in South India adjacent to Sri Lanka and collects information about minerals in the Gulf of Mannar.
