·1-min read

Colombo, Jun 30 (PTI) India on Wednesday dismissed as 'factually incorrect' media reports that claimed it sought to use Sri Lankan airspace for a joint military exercise with a third country.

'We have seen some media reports stating that authorities in Sri Lanka declined a request by India to use Sri Lankan airspace for a Joint Military Exercise with a third country. High Commission of India would like to deny these reports as they are factually incorrect,” the Indian High Commission here said in a statement.

It said that 'no such request has been made by India for using the Sri Lankan airspace in the recent past for the purpose of any joint exercise with a third country.' The High Commission, however, did not mention which media had speculated on the purported Sri Lankan denial of India's request. PTI CORR ZH AKJ ZH ZH
