India - we expect Sri Lanka to keep our security concerns in mind

The Indian government expects Sri Lanka to keep India's security concerns in mind, the ministry of external affairs said on Thursday. 

Asked about China's control of Hambantota port in Sri Lanka, the MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar was quoted by ANI as saying, "we are confident about the strength and enduring nature of our ties with Sri Lanka which are deep rooted and multi dimensional. Our relations with Sri Lanka stand on its own and are not dependent on our relation with any third country."

"We continue to take up with Sri Lanka issues related to security concerns in the region and expect that our Sri Lankan friends will keep in mind our security concerns and sensitivities," India's MEA spokesperson added.
