    We are enjoying the freedom recently mainly with the help of Chinese. Sri Lankans are happy about China! ;)

    Asia's era is coming, China is the main role of it, so why would we make China upset with us? lol

    Aisan era will be Chinas and India's and your country has decided it will be a pawn in Chinese chess games. It's going to be dangerous.

    Let me tell you that while China may have done things in your country, local citizens are not happy as it didn't create any opportunities for them. Chinese bring everything from China including labor force.

    The sooner your govt realizes that Chinese are leeches the better for you.

    Asian era isn't become reality with one or two countries, China, Japan, India, south Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Veitnam, Sri Lanka, Singapore all are share their role! But what I have mentioned is main role will play by China, like they do now. India isn't closer to China or they have much capability of influence most of Asian countries.

    How do you say local citizens aren't happy with what China is doing in Sri Lanka? We know there are some disadvantages for us but what we see is development is happening and it effects to local people directly. Chinese bring labours from their country but it doesn't mean there aren't jobs for locals in those projects, our people also work in these projects. Also I would like to remind our unemployment rate is lower, it's just 3.9%.

    Of course no any country help with out any advantage to them. Main reason China helping to SL because they want to have future presence in Indian ocean. It is advantage to them to have friendly country, that's why they are looking forward to increase their presence in Sri Lanka and Maldives. But the capability of providing facilities to China is lower by Maldives, so they want Sri Lanka has a friend. We, Sri Lanka as a neutral country taking advantage from both China and India by managing this situation. We don't have reason to forget China and help to India or forget India and help to China, we only think about Sri Lanka and Sri Lankans! Why we worry about about a neighbouring country or outsiders? This is what every country in this world do!

    Situation in Pakistan is different, they suffer coz of some groups of internal religious extremism. If they able to manage it they can become stable and booming economy.
