India & Sri Lanka to jointly develop Oil Farms in Trincomalee Harbour
India & Sri Lanka are about to ink a multi-million dollar to develop oil farms in the Trincomalee Harbour. There were fears this deal would go to China, but Colombo has turned to New Delhi. Why?
Sending love from the US to all Indian brothers and sisters.
yes that's right
Nothing's changed. Sri Lanka is playing both China and India with each other.
As Sri Lankans we are really disappointed with our leaders .. for not having any plan except selling our resources
India's diplomatic win.
Love to see countries come together for their people! WHAT……..ohh……it was for money. I guess that’s just as noble.
This act of Srilanka can be a game plan to negotiate a better deal with China. Until deal is done, anytime anything can change.
India should rigorously do business with all neighbours and keep China at bay
a diplomatic & geopolitical win of India with Sri Lanka.
A small point for those interested in history: Trincomalee is an anglicized form of the Tamil word '' (pronounced as thirukonamalai')
We Indians have pretty friendly neighborhood
Finally, it is great to see the old friend is back in the block. I hope they do not repeat old mistakes.
SL is a past mastwr in playing one big power against another.
Rebuilding some old oil tanks is considered a diplomatic success ?
Now, you guys out there know why China and India are so different.
I can't believe those tanks have been mothballed all this long.

Nice, i think they should unite as one
We are happy. India and Sri Lanka are good friends to work with.
I love this India's constant obsession with its neighbors and their businesses instead of looking into their own problems, like making people poop in a toilet for one.
It's called INDIAN OCEAN for a reason! India we are rooting for you, Sri Lanka and indian ocean is your backyard
To beloved Modiji we are proud to have you as our leader under your Leadership and your team our Great Nation is achieving new heights
pakistan and turkey will also do joint begging at UN assembly.
After Sikkim was absorb into India, all India neighbours are very careful dealing with India, they usually play both side.
Deal is not yet signed, it's would be better if WION reports it after the deal is done, else they will be embarrassed if SriLanka ditched India for China.
@1.28 Those tanks were built during British Rule, they weren't built by British. They built using Ind/SL's money, labor & material for the British.
India and Srilanka are friends from past...no one can break this...
The deal should have been with India all along
Sri Lanka us sold piece by piece to India and China .
Sri Lanka should realize that we are their friends. Sure, they don't have to be our puppet state, but they need to understand that we won't colonize them. Technically speaking, they would greatly benefit for maintaining neutrality and retaining their sovereignty. Look at what is happening to Pakistanis.
China is all over the Indian ocean and it would most probably come a time when Indian fishermen will need Chinese clearance to fish off the coast of India
Indian neighbors are making the best out of India-China rivalry. Getting pieces of cake from both India and China.
