The Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka has replied to reports about the google map image that had emerged in social media showing multiple buildings in Hambantota spelling out ‘CHINA SW’ saying that it was initially constructed to show ‘CHINA ❤️ SLK.’

The official Twitter account of the Chinese Embassy in Colombo tweeted saying it was originally designed to spell out as ‘CHINA ❤️ SLK’ by China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) when the Hambantota port was built.

However, the Tweet said that after Hambantota International Port Group (HIPG) and Hambantota International Port Services (HIPS) moved in and took it over as a residential camp, they had to extend the building to accommodate more people as the business of the port increased quickly.
