Camerons Port City links questioned

David Cameron, the former UK Prime Minister who is now a foreign sectary has been asked to explain his relationship with China, by the media. It is reported that he had been enlisted by the Sri Lankan government to help raise funds for the Port City Colombo project, a controversial Chinese-built port in Sri Lanka.

Nirj Deva, a former Tory MEP and close associate of Cameron, played a key role in arranging Cameron’s involvement in the Port City Colombo project.

The Port City Colombo project is a massive infrastructure development that has been criticized for its potential to become a strategic outpost for China and for its lack of transparency and environmental concerns.

Cameron’s association with the Port City Colombo project has raised questions about his potential conflicts of interest, given his past ties to China and his new role as UK Foreign Secretary.

The Sri Lankan government’s decision to involve Cameron in the Port City Colombo project highlights the country’s close ties to China and its willingness to engage with controversial figures to secure investment.

“Cameron is in the right place at the right time,” wrote former Tory MEP Nirj Deva, the new U.K. foreign secretary. “There are very few if any international leaders who could lead on so many fronts with knowledge, deep relationships, and meticulous attention to detail.

While  Cameron was in Colombo, he met  President Wickremesinghe with  Conservative Party member and former EU MP Niranjan Deva Aditya and  visited the Colombo port city project, where he was updated with the ongoing developments and future plans
