New Delhi, Apr 05: Both Sri Lanka and Pakistan are in economic doldrums and the political crisis is only adding to the worse of these two nations that neighbour India.
One of the main reasons for this is the Chinese debt trap.
The situation in these two countries has now forced nations like Maldives, Bangladesh and Nepal to think again on the Chinese infrastructure and also being part of the BRI initiative.
In Sri Lanka the blame clearly lies on Rajapaksa who began leaning towards the Chinese heavily much to the displeasure of India. The nation brought upon itself immense economic stress by taking high interest loans from China in the name of developing infrastructure.
