China’s spy vessel did not get permission to enter Sri Lanka


Colombo. Chinese spy ship denied entry into Sri Lanka. It is believed that the Sri Lankan government has taken this decision due to India’s opposition.

China’s spy vessel Yuan Wang 5 was scheduled to reach Sri Lanka’s Hambantota port on August 11. The vessel was said to be anchored at the port on August 11 for refueling and food supplies, and then set sail on August 17.

After this information came, India had objected to it. Security reasons were cited behind this objection from India. After this the Sri Lankan government decided not to allow the Chinese spy vessel to enter Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan government has asked the Chinese government to postpone the visit of its space-satellite tracker ship Yuan Wang 5 at the Hambantota port until further consultations between the two governments.

This vessel Yuan Wang 5 was built in 2007 and is capable of carrying 11,000 tonnes. The ship is currently in the East China Sea, south of Japan and northeast of Taiwan, according to the Marine Traffic website. It was told that the Yuang Wang-5 is actually a spy vessel, which wants to come here with the aim of investigating the sea surface by anchoring in Hambantota. The ship is coming for the purpose of gathering sensitive information for the anti-submarine operations of the Chinese Navy. India had also opposed the stopping of this vessel for this reason.
