    Sri Lanka is a sovereign country and has intellegent officials and can look after our country. Japan should not interfere in SRi Lanka's development and maritime decisions

    I think appointing a special envoy for development projects is a very good idea. If not monies received for development projects goes into the accounts of politicians.

    Nonsense. How does Sri Lanka want to guarantee maritime security in the region with its few small war ships and inadequately trained sailors?

    Maritime security could not be established within our own waters by our Navy or Coast Guard. April 01st is long gone but the lies continue.
