US delegation in Lanka for top-level defence talks
India is closely watching the US defence team in Colombo. How will it impact Indian security concerns? Will the US delegation study the Chinese spying on Sri Lanka more than China does on India?
Observers feel that India does not realize that the Sinhalese will go with anyone except India. They will gladly go with America if it means keeping India out. Previously, it was China that offered them that guarantee.
India does understand the Sinhalese mindset, but will India yield to the tactics of a tiny island nation Sri Lanka?
A 20-member US delegation comprising high-level defence officials arrived in the country in two special aircraft of the United States Air Force last night at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) The delegation includes US Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defence for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs Jedidiah Royal. It was reported that the security in and out of the Bandaranaike International Airport and its surrounding areas had been tightened during the last few days due to the arrival of the US delegation team.
The delegation arrived at the BIA aboard Boeing C-17 Globemaster III special aircraft. An airport official said that this visit was a top-level defence discussion.
The delegation was escorted to Colombo from the BIA amid tight security and the lanes towards Colombo at the Colombo – Katunayake Expressway had been closed for traffic during their arrival.
It was also reported that the delegation is scheduled to meet top Sri Lanka security officials during the visit.

Which country in the world has become prosperous after the American intervention. It is up to the leadership how far they want go down the drain. The Japs and Germans post the WW kept them confined to the Military bases but in Okinawa turned in to a den of drugs and prostitutes with the locals opposing it now.
Sri Lanka = Let the fool in his folly sleep !!
Let it choose with whom it wants to flirt. China has screwed them. If they still want to sleep with them, let them do it for they prefer hell & they deserve it.
If they choose USA, let it go, for India need not have to fear USA
Sri Lanka has golden opportunity to align with Pakistan and threaten entire world with Nuclear bomb.
