    Nothing impossible. Sri Lankan’s well known strategic importancy of maritime and warfare for westerns. However any agreement will be for a mutual benefit safeguarding National Interest of Sri Lankans. USA must understand their old methods will not works for a longer.

    At present 15 million barrels of oil flowing from the Persian Gulf and Africa comes to the energy deficient Asia-Pacific and this oil in comes in Hugh Tankers which passes through the territorial waters of Sri Lanka. By 2035 when the US should be completely independent of foreign oil imports the Middle East would be sending about 90% of its oil to the Asia-Pacific Region and Sri Lanka will need a Naval Fleet about the size of the American 5th Fleet now based in Bahrain to cope with the task of ensuring the Energy Security of the Asian Pacific demand for oil and gas. Sri Lanka will assume the status of the Egypt in the Suez Canal days.
