    Sri Lanka Army has rejected the PTI news which reported that India purchased arms from Sri Lanka.

    The Indian Lok Sabha was informed yesterday that the Indian Government had purchased weapons from Sri Lanka during the past three years.

    In a written reply to a Lok Sabha query, Defence Minister A. K. Antony said the three forces have spent over 23.5 billion Indian rupees for procuring weapon systems from several countries, including Russia, Israel, the US, the UK, Poland, Slovakia, Finland and Sri Lanka.


    As per the data provided by the three Services headquarters, Russia has emerged as the biggest beneficiary.

    However when our news team contacted Sri Lanka Army, its Spokesman Brigadier Ruvan Wanigasooriya termed the report as false news.

    He stressed that Sri Lanka has never sold arms to India in the past.

    There is difference between arms and the equipment for armed forces in general.

    In the reply in Lok-sabha, I think Def. Minister might have meant to list the countries from whom we have procured defense equipment rather than only arms.

    I don't know about arms purchase from Sri-Lanka but do know that we have an outstanding order of 80 FIC craft for Navy (Sagar-Prahari Bal) from a shipyard( Solas Marine) in Colombo, some of which have been already delivered.

    Now, If your defense officials would issue such prompt statements ( which has an repulsive undertone) , without clarifying the information through proper channels, then Solas Marine must forget about the repeat order of these FIC.

    Thanks for clarifying this. Otherwise I was under the impression this was some fake news or something else.

    SL manufactures arms and equipment?

    Added:

    Good to know they have outsourced their industrial potential to foreigners.

    Not surprising.

    As Lee Kuan Yew has said in an interview to a US Journalist, Sri Lankanese are bone lazy and rather unimaginative.

    Must be the salubrious weather that is so balmy that has got infused in their bones and genes that are at play!

    What good will it do?

    They will still not protect the Indian fishermen from the SL Navy attacks on defenceless civilians!

    This namby pamby Govt is hard at it to make India a toothless Tiger that is only fit to be pounded into Chinese traditional medicine!

    Lazy Sri Lankans' Sri Lanka is the best country in South Asia according to most of stats while some of countries in the region struggling with their poverty, lack of basic facilities etc. Some of their citizens even do not have toilet facilities, still sh***ing on the roads.

    Sometimes have to write about unnecessary topics to remind them how lazy people are them. Hope they will think twice when mentioning about 'lazy' Sri Lankans.

    Best country?

    Child sex?

    A postage stamp is easy to govern and even for that you are failing.

    Have you not realise how you have sold yourself to foreigners?

    What industry can you claim to be solely designed, devised by Sri Lankese and which is not outsourced?

    Let us be clear. You are so insignificant that none cares to even do research about your country!

    Are you suggesting that you have highways with concrete and commodes even in your drawing rooms?

    Who are you trying to impress?

    Your child sex comment shows your sick mentality! Once again I have to say think about your country first. It's become funny when someone blames to a country keeping much more worse things in their country.

    oh yeah man, no one cares to research about Sri Lanka.

    yeah yeah, we don't have good roads and infrastructure, we are the worst country in the region. lol

    So it is my country. So why you care about it mind your own business Mr. Ray. If there is a error we will mend it we do not need take tuition from people like you.

    Here's what def. minister had said in Lok-Sabah.

    Indian Three Year Defence Imports Totaled US$ 38 Billion

    ============================================================================================

    This is what A. K. Antony had replied.
    But, our friends from Sri-Lanka converted the answer to procurement to arms and ammunition rather than weapon system.
    They were quite prompt in denying selling arms to India.
    But, the question is whether the distortion deliberate or un-intended?
