China and Sri Lanka today firmed up their defence relations during a meeting of their top officials who pledged to make efforts to boost relations between the two countries and their militaries.

Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie met a Sri Lankan delegation headed by Secretary of Defence and Urban Development Ministry Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

During the meeting in Beijing, they pledged to make efforts to boost relations between the two countries and their militaries, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

Rajapaksa is in China to attend the 9th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition to be held in the southern city of Zhuhai where China is exhibiting its defence equipment including its new attack helicopter and fighter jets.

Liang visited Colombo in September this year, becoming the first Chinese Defence Minister to visit the island.

Later, top Chinese Communist Party leader, Wu Bingguo visited the island during which 16 agreements had been signed focusing on infrastructure development in Sri Lanka including USD 760 million aid to help the island nation to become "Asia's miracle".(Indian Express)

    The country may not like the inevitable attached strings, however.

    Lobo Monday, 12 November 2012 02:21 AM

    If India was a true big brother instead of a bully we would not have to run to China. Can imagine all the muppets there getting ready to comment on this.

    Srilanka will eventually become an off-shore province of China and Chinese language could be also made a National Language.

    Jesus Monday, 12 November 2012 04:58 AM
