Sri Lanka postpones visit of Chinese vessel due to India concerns

NEW DELHI—China has criticized Sri Lanka’s decision to delay the docking of a Chinese survey vessel in one of its ports after India, citing potential security risks, objected to the arrival of the ship.

The Chinese vessel, the Yuan Wang 5, was due to dock at the Sri Lankan port of Hambantota on Thursday for refueling and supplies, government officials said. But Sri Lanka has submitted a request to China to postpone the ship’s arrival, a Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Monday.
