    Default PRC builds port in Sri Lanka

    Spotted this - new item to me - in The Times: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/new...cle6207487.ece

    Which reports China is building a commercial port in Sri Lanka, which could become a base for their expanding navy (similar to Gwador, the Pakistani port).

    I'd missed this development, although the article indicates others have not.

    Strange that the natural harbour, Trincomalee, ex-RN base was not used.

    Incidntally the Sri Lankan conflict rarely appears on SWJ.
