Looks like India need to deal with blackmailing neighbors for rest of its life. Give us money or we will will jump into chini camp. :rage:
our 4 billion USD donation was chump change to what China can give lankans and lankans are dependent on chinese to satisfy stringent IMF loans conditions, etc ...

Lankans will dance to chinese music far into the future whether we like it or not.

Sri Lanka and cleverly Dealing with China and India.

I do not agree with most of Sri Lanka and China supporters in this forum. Any spy or military ship is never on a diplomatic visit. In case of China it is a provocative visit. They failed in Taiwan debacle and switched their attention to India and Indian Ocean.

No balancing on the part of Sri Lanka is needed. It is India, in last three months saved them from hunger, fuel shortage and many more. Chinese were watching from a distance until the things get better and then they will move in, which they did and moved their spy ship to the Sri Lankan port for no reason other than provocation to india.

The current Sri Lanka president appears to be a lackey of the ejected Gotbaya family. They are exerting pressure on the current president thru their political party who are pro China. Now it is up to India to let them drift back to Chinese fold as before or strongly tell them to cease and desist. If they wish to be in Chinese fold then Indian aid should disappear.

With India largely refraining from supplying weapon systems and platforms with "offensive capabilities'' to Sri Lanka in its bloody
fight against the Tamil Tigers, Pakistan and China deftly stepped into the vacuum.

In fact, Sri Lankan defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapakse, during a visit to Islamabad on January 19-20, profusely thanked Pakistan for its "continued support'' to his country's armed forces which had helped in virtually breaking the backbone of LTTE.

So, when Sri Lanka jumped in to send its cricket team to Pakistan after India refused to do so in the 26/11 blowback, it was seen in some quarters as "a thank-you'' message from Colombo to Islamabad.

Over the last few years, Sri Lanka has increasingly turned to Pakistan and China for weapon supplies, which has left India wringing its hands in despair at the strategic manoeuvring by Islamabad and Beijing in what it considers its backyard.

So much so that national security adviser M K Narayanan once even went public with the palpable unease in the Indian defence establishment over the matter, by stating that Sri Lanka should not seek weapons from China or Pakistan since India as the "big power in the region'' would fulfil its needs.

The remarks expectedly created a furore in Sri Lanka, especially since Narayanan added that India would not provide weapons with offensive capabilities to the island nation due to political sensitivities in Tamil Nadu.

India, on its part, has supplied "defensive or non-lethal'' weapon systems like automatic 40mm L-70 close range anti-aircraft guns and `Indra' low-flying detection radars to the island nation, apart from training hundreds of Sri Lankan military personnel.

But this twin-pronged strategy of arms supplies and military training, coupled with intelligence sharing and "coordinated'' naval patrolling, however, has failed to effectively counter Pakistan and China's ever-growing strategic inroads into Sri Lanka.

Both Pakistan and China have assiduously forged deep military links with Sri Lanka, coming to its aid with emergency military supplies whenever the need arose.

Even as India dithered, Pakistan has transferred huge amounts of automatic rifles, heavy mortars, multi-barrel rocket launchers, artillery and tank shells to Sri Lanka in recent years.

Sri Lanka is also getting JY-11 3D air surveillance radars, armoured personnel carriers, T-56 assault rifles, machine guns, anti-aircraft guns, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, missiles, bombs and the like from China.

Some sections of the Indian defence establishment have even called for India to bolster arms supplies to Sri Lanka to prevent a repeat of what happened in Myanmar, where too Pakistan and China stepped in with military and other supplies after India initially rebuffed the military junta there.

Nonsense; the Pakistani and Chinese weapons killed thousands of Tamils including 8 years old boy of the leader. I have no sympathy for Gotbaya brothers who doomed Sri Lanka. Hence stop writing nonsense.

Once a fuck always a cuck.

Be it internal affairs or external affairs govt is always bending back.
Modiji did too much yoga and went on too plain diet and forgot gita's message...he is causing more damage to hindu deterrent within India with his lack of action whether its Bollywood drug muling (that idiots son is out), Bengals hindu killings or Rajasthan. Congress had more guts than this cuck that BJP turned into....yogiji is the only hope now. States have lost fear of central power with Punjab and khalistanis out of control but pretty much same story across the board internal and external. I do not think he will come through reestablishing sanatan glory

With respect to SL, no one knows what India is doing...south was the only somewhat non threatening area we had but now not sending message to SL is bad show. Herding is about leading and establishing fear and discipline

what exactly is the issue here?
helping a neighbour getting back on their feet isn't a bad thing.
Hambantota port Chinese investments allowing them to dock their ships ear games with Pakistan and the list goes on.

They are no neighbour but rather a prick on our side.

Indian policy makers seem to believe in this nonsense and therefore end up with a egg on their face every other day.

The goal is not to help I couldn't give s damn if they all starve to hell. The goal is to make them understand who the boss of this neighborhood is.

The west didn't reach this position by giving aid to others. The sooner India realises this the better.

other than IPKF, when did GoI ever adopt muscular policy in neighbourhood. that aside.

last time when GoI did what you asking them to do now, is when chinese filled the power vaccum in the region.

there is plenty of literature on "South Asia" being one of the least inter-connected regions in the world.

in effect, being stupid enough to leave power vaccum in this region has created this mess in the first place.

Exactly so we agree that there is a mess and thus India needs to once again come down hard on this mess to clear it.
