2 Chinese key military officers on secret visit to Vanni
August 5, 2010 20:33 GMT
Two key officers of China’s military paid a sudden and secret visit to Vanni where they met the occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA) top officers in the important bases in Vanni, sources in Vanni said. Even the key SLA officers based in Vanni had not been informed of the sudden visit of the Chinese military officials who arrived in a convoy of vehicles heavily guarded by the Sri Lanka President’s Special Security Force, the sources added.
The two top Chinese military officers’ visit to Vanni coincides with the Sri Lanka government’s hasty construction of prefabricated semi permanent houses for SLA personnel and Sinhalese families in Vanni with Chinese aid.
