India invited to invest in Hambantota

Under no circumstance will the Hambantota Port be used for military purposes and nothing would be done within the ports and ocean zones of this country that would jeopardize India’s security, said the Chief of Defence Staff Admiral Ravindra Wijegunawardena.

Indian media reported that the CDS had made this statement at a
conference held in India.

Last December, the Hambantota harbor was handed over to China on a 99 year lease.

Wijegunawardena also invited Indian investors to invest in the Hambantota industrial zone.
