Many Sri Lankans Refute Western Media Discrediting and Chinese Embassy also Speaks

Original title: Sri Lanka has repeatedly refuted the "New York Times" stigmatized report, the Chinese Embassy also uttered a message

The Sri Lankan Prime Minister's Office issued a statement on June 30 stating that it will transfer the country’s southern naval headquarters to the city of Hambantota. The city’s Hambantota Port is currently being constructed and operated by Chinese-owned enterprises. The background of this change is that the “New York Times” and other Western media have issued many articles in recent days, sullying China’s use of debt traps to allow Sri Lanka to hand over the Hambantota Port, and strongly exaggerating the “military significance” of the port. On June 30, the Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka issued a statement refuting the false report of the New York Times. On July 1, former Sri Lankan Rajapaksa issued a statement, using data to retaliate against the US media.

According to Agence France-Presse, the Sri Lankan government announced that the Southern Naval Command was transferred to Hambantota and stressed that "the security of the Hambantota port is under the control of the Sri Lankan navy, people do not have to worry." "Sri Lanka has informed China, The port cannot be used for military purposes." Sri Lanka’s “Daily Mirror” reported on June 30 that the Prime Minister’s statement also stated that “there was an American who asked me, 'If the Chinese army came to the port of Hambantota, what do you do?’ The Prime Minister replied, we There are troops stationed there." "The port of Hambantota is just a commercial port that will bring much-needed economic growth in the region."

The port of Hambantota has once again become a hot spot for public opinion, and it is inseparable from the provocation of the New York Times reported on June 25. The report stated that during Sri Lanka’s former President Rajapaksa’s administration, “Every time he turned to Chinese allies for loans and assistance, he always received a positive reply.” “Sri Lanka’s debt rapidly expanded under the leadership of Rajapaksa,” said Hanban. The failure of the Tota Port Development Project was unexpected," and then it became the port of China. The article also said that Chinese “funded Rajapaksa’s 2015 campaign” and quoted Sri Lankan officials as saying that the Hambantota Port negotiations “contain shared intelligence from the outset”. This report attracted a lot of reprints from the Western media and also caused criticism from all parties in Sri Lanka.
