China to expand its activities to Northern Sri Lanka; India worried

New Delhi: China is attempting to establish its hands in northern Sri Lanka close to Indian coast, which is giving India a matter of worry. China had already made certain infrastructure projects in Sri Lanka and now is planning to mark its presence in the Northern region also.

“Earlier Chinese investments and projects were restricted only to the Southern region but the Gotabaya Rajapaksa government is encouraging Chinese activities in the Northern part, ignoring the sentiments of the Tamil residents in the region,” said a source. “These activities could later be misused which is a matter or concern for India,” he added.
