According to the Times of India, India is reportedly stepping its defense cooperation with Sri Lanka and the Maldives.

The assistance will focus primarily on “capacity building” of the armed forces of both countries.

New Delhi will supply equipment and assist in training.

The decision to ramp up defense ties with Sri Lanka and Maldives was likely spurred by China’s interest in both those countries.

Meanwhile, Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa called on Indian Defence Minister Arun Jaitley and they discussed a number of issues.

Defence Secretary R K Mathur was also present.

Though officials remained tight-lipped about what transpired during the meeting, the visit takes place less than 10 days after Mathur visited Sri lanka.
