Be Mindful Of Ties: India To Sri Lanka

India has asked Sri Lanka to be mindful of ties with Delhi after the former cleared the China-backed Colombo Port City Project, which is 300 km from Indian shores. This is the single largest private sector-led development project in the island nation, worth $1.4 billion. Sri Lanka hopes the project will bring $15 billion in investment and create thousands of new jobs.
