A Chinese warship and submarine have docked at the Colombo Harbour.

Navy Media Spokesperson Commander Kosala Warnakulasuriya said that the ships had arrived to refuel and give the crew a rest.

The vessels that arrived on October 31 are due to leave the country on November 5.

Meanwhile, Indian media has revealed that India is concerned with the arrival of the Chinese vessels to Sri Lanka.

A similar incident took place a few months ago when a Chinese Navy vessel arrived in the country, prior to the arrival of the Chinese president.

When News1st made inquiries from Commander Kosala Warnakulasuriya in this regard, he added that there was no cause for alarm as foreign navy vessels frequently visit the Colombo Harbour.
