NewDelhi: It is reported that Yuvan Wang 5, China’s spy ship has arrived at Hambanthotta Port. Earlier, India warned Sri Lanka not to allow the ship to visit under any circumstances. India and America have come against this as the ship anchored at the coast of Sri Lanka. The ship is equipped with several systems including ballistic missile and satellite tracking. By ignoring the warnings from both the countries Sri Lanka has given permission to the spy ship.
The Pentagon has reported that, although China claims the Yuvan Wang 5 is a research vessel, it is controlled by the Chinese military’s Strategic Support Force. Initially Sri Lanka had asked China to postpone the ship’s visit after strong opposition from India and the America. China had again applied to get a new date of August 12 based on the Colombo Chinese Embassy discussion. After this, permission was given to the ship to stay at the port till August 22.
