English/Nat Almost as soon as a summit of South Asian leaders ended in July, the country's government declared a state of emergency. The summit had focused on the potential for greater economic co-operation between Sri Lanka and foreign investors. But the state of emergency will make it more difficult for businessmen to convince foreign investors that Sri Lanka is one of the best South Asian countries in which to invest. Repair work is still going on at Colombo's World Trade Centre. The centre was the target of a massive bomb ten months ago, blamed on Tamil Tiger rebels. More than ten million dollars has been spent to get things back to something resembling normality. Surrounding buildings and hotels still lie in disrepair, their windows shattered by the blast. The Trade Centre was intended as a symbol of Sri Lanka's economic ambitions. The business complex had only been open for three days when it was the target of an attack. Hussain Cassim is head of the company which owns the centre. The bombing was a big setback for attempts to persuade businesses that Sri Lanka was a good place to do business. He says foreign companies are waiting for the day when the separatist conflict comes to an end. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Realising the fact that we are undergoing a serious ethnic problem, I think we are doing reasonably well. I think the moment that it's not there we are in a takeoff situation, you see." SUPERCAPTION: Hussain Cassim, Director, Overseas Realty Analysts say that despite the conflict, Sri Lanka's economy is still doing remarkably well. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Sri Lanka is able to grow very fast and I won't say that in the current global environment where there is a lot of competition to attract foreign direct investment and foreign portfolio investment. We could show high growth rates as some countries show during the sixties and seventies. But reasonably high growth rates we could achieve and we could achieve the status of a middle income country very soon." SUPERCAPTION: Dr Saman Kelegama, Institute of Policy Studies The statistics support this view. Rising prices for tea, lower inflation and high productivity helped Sri Lanka's economy grow by 6.4 per cent in 1997. The sale of state-run companies to local and foreign companies also fetched 357 (m) million U-S dollars. Apart from some high profile bombings, Colombo, the capital, has largely been isolated from the conflict in the north and east. The business community is hoping to capitalise on this by developing the city's port into one of the strongest in South Asia. One of the key investors involved says the area is going to transform the country. SOUNDBITE: (English) "When completed will be the single largest investment Sri Lanka has attracted and would certainly take Sri Lanka into a different or to a higher plane. You may recollect that Singapore started off by developing their port and everything else fell into place thereafter so that is the sort of vision that the in which the government and those of us that are involved in the project are working towards." SUPERCAPTION: Ken Balendra, John Keells Holdings The government and a consortium of local and foreign investors signed a 1 (b) billion U-S dollars agreement for the Colombo port privatization project. The consortium is led by Britain's Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Co., P&O. Sri Lanka was the first country in South Asia to open up its economy. Tourism has yet to revive to its highest levels, but the number of visitors is increasing after the last bombing. Sri Lanka's business community is frustrated by the conflict, but is cautiously optimistic.

A day after India and Sri Lanka signed a historic nuclear agreement which will allow India to help Sri Lanka learn best practices on the management of reactors if Sri Lanka decides to embark on a nuclear programme, Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera tells NDTV that China does not have the right to object to the deal. Many have seen this agreement as one that could potentially ruffle Beijing's feathers, given the massive amounts of money China has pumped into Sri Lankan projects. However, the new Sirisena government has been quick to send Delhi an unambiguous message as soon as it took over - that India-Sri Lanka ties once again take centre-stage in Colombo, and unlike the government of predecessor Mahinda Rajapaske, Colombo's new regime has no desire to leverage ties with Beijing against India. In light of this change in Colombo's policy, the Sirisena government made its first foreign visit to India and has already begun a review of big Chinese infrastructure projects.

Speaking to NDTV at the 2016 World Economic Forum in Davos, Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said the port at Hambantota, which has raised concerns in India, was not a naval port. It is a commercial port being built with Chinese assistance and India is welcome for business, Mr Wickremesinghe said.

While India has expressed displeasure over the latest development, Sri Lanka has shown where its interests lie.

In his first year in office, Donald Trump turned out to be anything but the proverbial ‘bull in the China shop’ for China-U.S. relations. At Mar-a-Lago and again in Beijing during his ‘state-plus’ visit, Trump and Xi Jinping struck up a cordial and respectful relationship. But in the recently released National Security Strategy and National Defense Strategy, the Trump administration labeled China as a “revisionist power” and as an “economic aggressor.” Which face of Donald Trump will we see during the latter half of 2018?

China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia. No I’m not just rattling off a bunch of random countries in the Asia Pacific region. These countries are all involved in the escalating south china sea territorial dispute. The relatively small, but hotly contested area of water is estimated to see over five trillion dollars’ worth of global trade passing through it each year. But it’s not just the value of trade passing through which has caused this spicy Asian hotpot. There’s also the fishing rights and most importantly the drilling rights in the region which are at stake. The South China sea is a largely unexplored region when it comes to mineral wealth, but the word on the waves is that there is as much as eleven billion barrels of oil and nine hundred trillion cubic feet of natural gas buried deep beneath them and China wants it all for itself. So how does this affect me you might be thinking. Surely at some point, the sea will get carved up between the claimants and we’ll all benefit from a few billion barrels more oil? Well it’s not that simple. Tensions run deep between many of the countries and last year, China decided to stamp its authority in the region by building what at first looked like a few artificial sandbanks. It turns out however, through the magic of satellite imagery, that China has built a military base on the islands surrounded by ground to air missile launchers and packed with enough aircraft hangars to store twenty-five fighter jets and five bombers. And if that’s not enough of a reason to heighten tensions in the region, China’s President Xi has asked military personnel to strengthen their awareness in preparing for war. Of course you can’t have a good war unless the US and Russia involve themselves somehow and you’ll be pleased to know they’ve done exactly that. In the months leading up to the US election, Steve Bannon the Chief Strategist in the Trump administration stated explicitly that the United States and China will fight a war within the next ten years over islands in the South China Sea. There was no doubt about it he said. And just to cement their commitment to the cause, China’s military warned that war between the two countries was a real possibility on the day of Trump’s inauguration. With Japan and Indonesia both having strong ties with the US, Mike Pence, Trump’s right hand man has recently been sent on a ten-day tour of duty to the region to assure allies of the US that they have their support. The US might be playing nice with China today as it tries to convince the administration to pull its finger out over North Korea, but if that doesn’t go to plan, you can expect Trump to go back to his previous rhetoric and take his anger out on China elsewhere and that could be in the South China sea. But the US won’t have it all their own way. Russia is of course, prodding the proverbial wasp nest with a giant stick. Putin has made it clear he sees China as a natural military ally and partner and has even joined them on exercises in the South China sea. But he’s also offered to join the Philippines on joint ventures in the very same South China Sea. Even more confusingly, Russia calls Vietnam a strategic military partner in the region. So what’s Putin’s game? Aside from the simple goal of being a thorn in the side of the US, it’s clear Putin is hedging his bets and has a lot to gain from the region if it all goes bang. Russian companies have invested heavily in mining and drilling companies in the region to make sure they have presence no matter who wins and they’re also looking to build additional military bases in the region. So what does this all mean for you and me as investors? Well, if China goes to war you can forget those five percent plus per annum growth figures. China’s focus will shift entirely to winning and that means the Chinese economy, which is already weighted with extraordinary amounts of debt, could go through the floor and drag the worldwide economy down with it. It’s also likely to have a catastrophic impact on the emerging markets in the region and on Japan which is still struggling to get back to its glory days of the nineteen eighties. But can we really expect the south china seas dispute to end in all-out war or am I guilty, like the tabloids, of letting my overzealous imagination cloud the facts? With the US and Russia in the mix, I think it’s fair to say anything can and probably will happen so if you’re seriously considering investing in the region, be very careful out there.

Clarke, was buried on Saturday in his adopted home of Sri Lanka, where he died early on Wednesday at the age of 90. Clarke, who had battled debilitating post-polio syndrome for years, had suffered breathing problems in recent days, an aide said. Clarke's body was brought to his home in Colombo, where friends and fans can paid their respects before his burial. Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa attended the funeral and paid his final respects to the late author. The Ekanayake family, with whom the British author lived in the final decades of his life, cried as his coffin was lowered into the grave at the general cemetery in Colombo. His brother, Fred Clarke, and other family members were among the mourners. Some fans and followers also sprinkled soil into the grave. Music from the 1968 movie "2001: A Space Odyssey," which Clarke wrote with director Stanley Kubrick, was played at the funeral and at Clarke's home before the ceremony. The visionary author won worldwide acclaim with more than 100 books on space, science and the future in addition to numerous inventions. Fred said his brother never expected to see his inventions realised in his lifetime. "When he invented the communication satellite, he never expected to see it in his lifetime, in 1945," Fred told AP Television. From 1950, Clarke began a prolific output of both fiction and non-fiction, sometimes publishing three books in a year. A statement from Clarke's office said he had recently reviewed the final manuscript of his latest novel. "The Last Theorem," co-written with Frederik Pohl, which will be published later this year. Some of his best-known books are "Childhood's End," 1953; "The City and The Stars," 1956; "The Nine Billion Names of God," 1967; "Rendezvous with Rama," 1973; "Imperial Earth," 1975; and "The Songs of Distant Earth," 1986. Clarke, a British citizen, was officially given a knighthood in 1998, but he delayed accepting it for two years after a London tabloid accused him of being a child molester. The allegation was never proved. He moved to Sri Lanka in 1956. Rajapaksa often lauded Clarke for his passion for his adopted home country. In recent years, Clarke was linked by his computer with friends and fans around the world, spending each morning answering e-mails and browsing the Internet. Clarke married in 1953, and was divorced in 1964. He had no children. He is survived by his brother, Fred, and sister, Mary.

This summer, China’s attempt to extend a road through the Doklam plateau, a disputed area near the borders of China, India, and Bhutan, led to an eight-week-long standoff between two of the most powerful countries in Asia. Despite $70 billion trade ties, China and India continue to view each other as adversaries. Numerous incursions and military standoffs have occurred across their 2,500 mile-long shared border. The deepening India-U.S. relationship is a source of concern in Beijing, while New Delhi and Washington are increasingly wary of close Sino-Pakistan ties, especially the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). On November 16, Hudson Institute’s South and Central Asia Program hosted a discussion on India-China relations with Dr. Manoj Joshi, a distinguished fellow with the Observer Research Foundation in New Delhi, and Dr. Aparna Pande, a research fellow and director of Hudson Institute's Initiative on the Future of India and South Asia.

India has launched its first nuclear submarine. With the launch, the country now joins the elite club of five nations which have nuclear-powered submarines. On Sunday, July 26, India launched its first nuclear-powered submarine, capable of firing ballistic missiles. For more news and videos visit ☛ http://ntd.tv Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C The Prime Minister's wife launched the nuclear-powered submarine traditionally by cracking the auspicious coconut on the hull of the vessel. The project is part of a $2.9 billion dollar plan to build five submarines. So far they have been delayed for years due to technical problems. Experts say India is modernising its armed forces and is focusing on improving its naval fleet, with new ships and submarines to counter the strategic interest of China in the region. [Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister]: "The sea is increasingly becoming relevant in the context of India's security interests and we must re-adjust our military preparedness to this changing environment. Our Navy, therefore, has a high responsibility in this." China is India's biggest trade partner in Asia. But India is wary of China's growing military might and fears its giant rival wants to strategically encircle India as Beijing continues to supply weapons to India's neighbors, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Executing a Smarter Trade Strategy amidst Turbulence Global trade has moderated, the multilateral trade integration agenda has stalled, and new turbulences are putting a strain on globalization. In the industrialised West, societies are placing pressure on their governments to do more to ensure trade is working for more people. As a consequence, tendencies towards protectionism are on the rise especially in subtle forms like non-tariff and regulatory barriers. Amidst this, Sri Lanka is embarking on a new trade reform effort, anchored to tariff liberalisation, preferential trade agreements, and export promotion. Is this a foolhardy strategy? Can Sri Lanka win? What must be done to realistically push forward? With these trends in the West, how can Sri Lanka latch on to growth in Asia, using ASEAN as a pivot ?

The Institute of East Asian Studies, UC Berkeley, in collaboration with the Department of Politics & International Studies, University of Cambridge, is convening a workshop on “Maritime Asia” with a focus on the “securitization” of the China Seas in the 19th and 20th Centuries. This public forum presents the highlights from the workshop. Anchored in the disciplines of historical and international studies, we view “securitization” as a process of politicization that is geographically defined, historically contingent, resource constrained and trans-temporal in its effects. We also view securitization as the formation of a discourse that is contingent upon complex speech acts in multiple sites. What can we learn from China's modern history about the nation's long-term aspirations as a maritime power? How does Beijing pursue naval preeminence in a post-Cold War political economy of globalizing connections and multilateral agreements? As China aspires to become a major Asian maritime power in the 21st century, we propose to examine the how, why, and the so what, internally and internationally, about its significance.

China held an international conference last month that has advanced its massive Belt and Road Initiative, which will build infrastructural, trade and other links to nearly 70 countries. In three of China’s neighbors—Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Burma—energy projects, ports, dams and other Chinese investments promise potential benefits. But they also have prompted protests connected to local political disputes or even ethnic insurgencies. Join USIP on June 20 for a discussion of the broad impact of Chinese investments in these three countries, whose stable evolution remains a U.S. interest.

This video shows you that 7 Countries Object To China's BRI Initiative Including Pakistan. China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which aims to build a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient trade routes of Silk Road, has hit a roadblock in seven countries, according to a recent report. The Gwadar Port in Pakistan's Balochistan province is the venue of the USD 63 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). China is developing Pakistan's power plants, airports, highways and other infrastructure under the project. Also, Beijing aims to link its landlocked western region to Gwadar. Despite this, some analysts have expressed concerns such as rising trade deficit of Pakistan with China. There are also doubts on how Islamabad will repay off its debt to Beijing if the former is unable to do so. Also, there are worries that the price of such investment can be a huge debt burden, according to the report by Nikkei Asian Review. "The China-Pakistan corridor will no doubt be a game changer for Pakistan, but we need to be careful. Ten years' tax concessions, 90-year leases for Chinese companies and cheap imports will impact the competitiveness of existing domestic industries," Nikkei Asian Review quoted Ehsan Malik, the CEO of Pakistan Business Council, a business policy advocacy forum, as saying. Nikkei Asian Review and The Banker magazine have published a detailed report on the status of the BRI projects in seven countries - Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Kazakhstan, Bangladesh, Poland, Laos and Pakistan. The report also deduces the concerns of these countries ranging from a lack of participation by local workers and banks to unmanageable debts. In Indonesia, the BRI project has been experiencing serious delays. Construction on a USD 6 billion railway line is running behind schedule, coupled with rising costs. This has been the same scenario in Kazakhstan and Bangladesh. In terms of deficits, concerns have been raised about owing unmanageable debts to China in Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Laos, along with Pakistan. As per the report, Beijing's massive economic project is also plagued with sovereignty concerns. In Sri Lanka, China's takeover of the Hambantota Port has raised eyebrows over the "loss of sovereignty." ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

INTRODUCTION: Vietnam’s Defense Minister Ngo Xuan Lich met with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on August 8, a much-anticipated meeting that had been postponed from its original date. The two took stock of defense ties to date and agreed to deepen cooperation in several areas, including more naval engagement and information sharing. Though they discussed a wide range of issues in their bilateral defense ties during, the biggest headline item that emerged was the first visit of a U.S. aircraft carrier to Vietnam, set for next year. Although the sides didn’t release any further details, the aircraft carrier is likely to dock in Cam Ranh Bay, the Vietnamese base that the U.S. Navy used extensively during the Vietnam War. Notably in October 2016, two U.S. warships, the submarine tender USS Frank Cable and guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain, docked in Cam Ranh Bay. The decision indicates a growing relation between US and Vietnam and is sure to upset China. Sino Vietnamese relation has hit new lows in recent times mainly because China’s hostile behavior over South China Sea disputes. In this video, Defense Updates analyzes the background and helps viewers understand the significance of the move. Lets get started. BACKGROUND United States and Vietnam have a broad defense relationship, built in line with the gradual normalization of ties that has taken place since 1995 when U.S. President Bill Clinton was in office. Cooperation has slowly grown to encompass areas including maritime security, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief and peacekeeping. Bilateral defense relations have also been strengthening over the past few years as part of a broader comprehensive partnership signed in 2013 under former U.S. President Barack Obama, who presided over the historic lifting of a decades-old arms embargo on Vietnam toward the end of his presidency. The positive momentum in U.S.-Vietnam ties appears to be continuing under the new administration of U.S. President Donald Trump so far. A string of high-level visits have already gotten underway quickly, including the White House visit of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc in May. President Trump has also committed to going to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit (APEC) in Vietnam this November, and there has been a series of moves in the maritime security domain, including the handing over of patrol boats and a Coast Guard cutter as well as U.S. port visits and other naval engagements. CHINA FACTOR China has maintained very high economic growth over the last 20 years & has become a major economic power. It has spent heavily on military buildup & modernized its military forces. SOUTH CHINA SEA DISPUTE China’s sweeping claims of sovereignty over the sea have infuriated competing claimants Malaysia, Brunei, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines as well as Vietnam. United States, Japan, Australia and India favor freedom of navigation as it is a very important sea route with 5 trillion $ in trade, half of global merchant shipping and 1/2 of world’s oil shipment pass through it. The sea also has alleged 11 billion barrels of untapped oil and 190 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. CHINESE TACTICS China has tried to change the territorial status quo gradually, island-by-island instead of trying to capture in one go. For example, China first occupied the Paracel Islands in 1974 and then slowly expanded its presence southward by attacking Vietnam’s islands in the Spratly chain in the 1980s. This strategy known as salami slicing, aims for slow accumulation of small changes. AIRCRAFT CARRIER Though details are not divulged, it is most likely that US will send one of it 10 Nimitz class carrier. Nimitz class carriers been one of the most important asset of the US armed forces and has enabled power projection far off from the US homeland. These displace about 100,000 tons when fully loaded, can move faster than 30 knots and carry more than 60 combat aircraft. CONCLUSION: It is the greatest of irony that a communist nation seeks support from America to counter belligerence and aggression from another communist nation. America under Trump has already stepped up the game with increase in frequency of Freedom of Navigation Operations as well as initiating investigation in illegal trade practices of China. While Vietnam has been careful to calibrate how quickly it pushes its defense ties with Washington – as they often need to be weighed against other considerations such as domestic politics as well as the balancing of its foreign relationships, the pace has been decent. The fact that moves like an aircraft carrier visit are being agreed to speaks for itself, in terms of Vietnam’s assessment of the current regional security environment and how it will pursue its interests and its alignments with major powers.

In terms of deficits, concerns have been raised about owing unmanageable debts to China in Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Laos, along with Pakistan. As per the report, Beijing's massive economic project is also plagued with sovereignty concerns. In Sri Lanka, China's takeover of the Hambantota Port has raised eyebrows over the "loss of sovereignty." In 2008, former Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa had ordered the construction of the USD 1.5 billion Hambantota Port. Colombo has granted a 99-year lease on the port to China Merchants Port Holdings in a bid to eliminate its debts. The first phase of the project, which ended in 2010, costs USD 361 million. The Export-Import Bank of China financed 85 percent of the work during the first phase. The Sri Lankan Government found itself unable to repay its debts as the port's losses started piling up. The country had an external debt of USD 48.3 billion in 2017-end, and its annual external financing needs are USD 11 billion. Colombo owes a debt of USD 8 billion to Beijing and is said to carry an interest rate of 6 percent, according to the report. In 2009, Rajapaksa flagged off the construction of Sri Lanka's second international airport in Mattala, situated 20km from the port. Of the USD 209 million construction cost, the Exim Bank of China put up USD 190 million with a concessionary loan. The Mattala airport is now known as "the world's emptiest international airport" since it has only four regular flights arriving and departing per week. The Sri Lankan government has plans to sell off the airport as it is mounting losses. Source :- ET Background Music :- bensound.com Disclaimer- This channel is for defence related news worldwide .

What lies ahead for the Korean Peninsula: a continuation of the status quo, a major crisis, or perhaps a breakthrough for peace? Over the last decade, relations among Seoul, Pyongyang, and Washington have been largely static, with any changes seeming to escalate regional tensions. Now, in the wake of the Winter Olympics, the ongoing dialogues among North Korea, the Republic of Korea, and the United States might constitute the first steps towards denuclearization and peace on the Peninsula. As longtime and steadfast allies, the United States and the Republic of Korea must continue working together to prepare for two groundbreaking sets of negotiations: the inter-Korean Summit between Pyongyang and Seoul on April 27, and the second summit between Kim Jong-un and President Trump. These talks could reshape the strategic landscape of Northeast Asia for decades to come, and the world awaits the outcomes of these summits with wary attention and cautious optimism. Please join the Atlantic Council and the East Asia Foundation for what will be the first public convening in Washington, DC after the historic inter-Korean summit to feature senior ROK government officials. Members of a high-level delegation from Seoul will deliver remarks debriefing the Moon-Kim summit, addressing the future of North Korea’s nuclear program, the US-ROK alliance, and inter-Korean relations. Alongside US experts and policymakers, they will share their views on the inter-Korean dialogue and what it might signify for the United States-North Korea summit just on the horizon.

Public Lecture by Emeritus Professor Paul Dibb and Adjunct Associate Professor John Lee. The belief that China will soon become the dominant power in Asia is based on assumptions that its continued and rapid economic rise, and its emergence as a regional peer of America’s in military terms is all but assured. Such a belief underpins arguments that a fundamental strategic reorganisation of Asia is inevitable, and that it will be necessary and perhaps even desirable to concede to China significant ‘strategic space’. Dependent largely on linear extrapolations about the future, such arguments ignore the implications of China’s economic, social and national fragilities, its lack of major friends or allies in the region as well as the considerable military deficiencies and challenges faced by the People’s Liberation Army. With the Defence White Paper due for release in 2015, the government should bear in mind that planning for an era of Chinese dominance in the region—or even its emergence as an American strategic peer in Asia—would be premature if not improbable. Australia should not design its defence force for war with China, but it should be able to counter Chinese coercion and contribute to Allied military operations if necessary. Paul Dibb is Emeritus Professor of Strategic Studies in the Strategic & Defence Studies Centre, Coral Bell schol of Asia-Pacific Affairs, ANU. He was head of the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre from 1991 to 2004. Before that he held the positions of deputy secretary for Defence, director of the Joint Intelligence Organisation and head of the National Assessments Staff. He studied the former Soviet Union for over 20 years both as a senior intelligence officer and academic. He advised ASIO on certain Soviet activities. His book The Soviet Union--the Incomplete Superpower was published by the International Institute for Strategic Studies , London in 1986, reprinted 1987 and second edition 1988. John Lee is an Australian academic working on international economic and security affairs with a focus on the Asia-Pacific. Lee is an adjunct associate professor at the Australian National University's Strategic and Defence Studies Centre, a Michael Hintze Fellow at the Centre for International Security Studies, University of Sydney and a senior scholar at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC. Lee is a board member of the Institute for Regional Security.
