The Commander of the Sri Lanka Navy states in New Delhi that Sri Lanka will never compromise on India’s national security.

The Commander of the Sri Lanka Navy Vice Admiral Jayantha Perera allayed India’s fears on increasing Chinese military presence in the Sri Lanka, as he categorically stated that Sri Lanka will never compromise on India’s national security or for that matter of any other country. Jayantha Perera also tried to assuage India concerns, downplaying China making any strategic inroads into the region. Calling himself as a friend of India, he thanked India for lending its support to end the ethnic conflict in the island nation, which he said is now marching towards economic revival. Officials of the Sri Lanka Navy and Indian Navy will also participate in discussions to further strengthen bilateral ties between both Navies.
