    Sri Lanka is broke and going for second bailout from the IMF in 3 years, despite the $5 Billion dollars of commercial loans they have taken in the last few years.

    Just a few days ago they borrowed via bonds a billion dollars to pay interests and maturing loans for 2012.


    Kaplan is wrong saying China giving aid to Sri Lanka. It is construction loans at 8%, and total $3 Billion in loans so far in the last 3-4 years mainly on lucrative contracts where there was no tender.

    They also sold 180 Railway engines last week, probably on generous loans at high interest and profits for the “rolling stock” manufacturer.

    Foreign navies have used our ports in Colombo and Trincomalee for the past 64 years, and the French Navy carrier was in Trinco just a few days ago. So does the Russians and India. Kaplan is a fear monger, and China has the right to expand in Asia because it is it’s own continent, and more importantly a growing world economic power. It lends huge amounts to the US itself at very low interest.
