外文标题：India interfering in Sri Lanka's internal affairs, says Chinese thinktank
BEIJING: A Chinese government backed thinktank has accused India of interfering in the internal affairs of Sri Lanka when Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently visited the Tamil dominated Jafna area. It has also said India was trying to counter Beijing's influence by encouraging Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Bangladesh to avoid the China's Silk Road program.
"Modi included in his Sri Lanka trip the city of Jaffna in the Tamil-majority Northern Province, which in fact shows India's interference in the country's internal affairs," an article by Liu Zongyi, a researcher at the state-backed Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, said.
Incidentally, Sri Lankan leaders, who accompanied Modi on his Jafna visit, has no such suspicion about Indian interference.
Modi's recent visit to three Indian Ocean countries was aimed at making India a dominant power in the region, the article published in Global Times, a Communist Party organ, said.
China should keep off Lanka.
We should blame China that it interferes India in its relationship with neighbors .

China have acquired bases in Pakistan, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. India does not have any such acquisitions yet China appears to be so concerned. The Indian Ocean and sub-continent is a very big pie, China. You already have bitten off a huge chunk so don't cry wolf when India also wants a bite!!

By making such statements, China is interfering in the internal affairs of both India and Srilanka. China should be more concerned in its own internal affairs than being bothered about other countries.
It makes sense for SL to have more friendly relations with India than with other countries Chinese are desperately trying to have a foot hold in SL and their mission has failed miserably with the defeat of Rajapakse.
India should say that Chinese is interfering in the Indian neighbourhood affairs.

Did anyone expect China to say anything else? CHINA HAS TO BE STOPPED ELSE IT WILL LEAD TO WW111.

Why does Indian PM require permission of China when visiting neighbouring countries? Especially when there is so much animosity between India and Sri Lanka on fishermen issue and historically over the Tamil diaspora residing in Sri Lanka's Jaffna its obvious India will interfere. And moreover when Sri Lanka is keen to restore relations with India why China is getting frustrated?
