Problem with India as the Hambantota Port Handed Over to China- Indian Defense Minister


Nirmala Sitharaman, defense minister in India, says that their country’s security would be at risk sooner as Sri Lanka handed over the Hambantota Port to Chinese Company. She expressed her ideas to the Indian media. According to Indian Media reports based on the Defense Minister’s statement, Sri Lankan government has handed over a portion of land surrounded by the port. Therefore China would use this privilege beyond the maritime affairs.
Last month, the Hambantota Magampura Port was handed over to a Chinese company under a 99-year lease in the midst of a massive public protest.
While acting in line with China’s demands, the government of Sri Lanka is granting privileges to India and USA.Therefore experts have warned that the contradictions between the two countries will be affected gravely on the economy and political interests of Sri Lanka.
