FLSP held a press conference addressing the impact of the visit of USA State Secretary to Sri Lanka.
Before the visit of Sri Lanka Mike Pompeo I signed a basic exchange and cooperation agreement for geospatial cooperation, for the exchange of classified geospatial intelligence between their armed forces.
According to the media briefing the agreement called BECA will permit the U.S. armed forces to provide advanced navigational aids and avionics and share geospatial intelligence to India that will help boost the accuracy of the Indian military’s automated hardware systems and weapons such as drones, cruise missiles and ballistic missiles. FLSP of the view that this agreement is nothing but the preparation for a military intervention to China with the assistance of India.
On the other hand FLSP is of the view that the china also initiated belt and Road project in order to dominate the world trade. Already Sri Lanka has been surrendered to the said strategy of China by taking over the control of Hambantota Habour. Simultaneously more than US $ 7000 million worth loans were given to Sri Lanka by China trapping to a web of debt.
Inevitably Sri Lanka has become a victim of the conflict between these world super powers. The USA State minister has given indication that Sri Lanka has to choose one side for their future economic plans while stating that China is a predator. It is clear that the objective of his visit to join Sri Lanka to the anti china camp.
Sri Lanka has already signed ACSA agreement with USA according to which USA army troops could enter into Sri Lanka without any impediment. Several discussions were held to sign MCC agreement in order to give local lands for foreign investments through Millennium Challenge Corporation which is under the State Secretary of the USA.
Hence it is clear that the leaders of Sri Lanka betraying the people for the USA-China imperial agendas.
