Geopolitics with Gotabaya minus ‘Kurahan Satakaya’

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s first meeting with a foreign government leader was with Indian Foreign Affairs Minster Dr. Jaishankar who made an exclusive trip to Colombo to deliver PM Modi’s congratulatory message in person and extend an invitation to visit New Delhi.

India no doubt is the most important neighbour, not only in terms of historical and cultural bindings we have, but also because it is the second most powerful nation in emerging New Asia. Although not as strong as with India, ancient China too has well documented relationships since the 5th Century with Fa-hien (also written as Fa Xien and Fa-hsien).
