    we already have a FTA with India. India Enjoys the benefits of it more than us. Sri Lankan exporters are facing difficulties when they try to export to India even under the FTA.

    Rightly so. India had the chance but they bullied and made countless demands on us.

    It is obvious that the Chinese, who seek "superpower status" are only interested in the value of the strategic location of Sri Lanka. The common man of Sri Lanka has no time or inclination to bother about this as he/she is struggling to exist. Conversely, of course the West must also be blamed because they chose to vilify, condemn and generally ignore the Rajapaksa government because of the diaspora vote. The only winner in the short term will be the Chinese.
