The ship will remain in Hambantota till August 22
A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said that after docking, the Yuan Wang 5 will take some time to complete the required response. Its scientific research is in accordance with international law and should not be interfered with by third parties. In the video from Hambantota, it can be seen how Sri Lanka is welcoming the Chinese ship. This ship will remain in Hambantota from 16 to 22 August. The presence of this ship in Sri Lanka is worrying for India because it can track satellites as well as detect Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs).
A day before India gave Dornier
This ship is a ship of the Yuanwang class. It weighs around 23,000 tonnes and can easily carry a crew of 400 sailors. Not only this, many types of sensors are also installed on this ship. On the completion of 75 years of independence, India gave a Dornier maritime surveillance aircraft to Sri Lanka as a friendship. Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe on Monday thanked India for gifting the Dornier aircraft to his country and said it would help kick-start cooperation between the Sri Lankan Air Force and Navy with the Indian Navy in maritime surveillance.
Has given a blow to India for Pakistan
This is not the first time that Sri Lanka has given a blow to India. Earlier, Sri Lanka had given permission to Pakistan’s warship Taimur, built in China, to stay with it. The warship was equipped with missiles and ammunition. This is a Type 054 A/P freegate made in China. At present, China is building two more such frigates for the Pakistan Navy. This ship was inducted into the Pakistan Navy on 23 June.
