The Indian media has reported that despite a request from the Sri Lankan government to suspend the voyage of the Yuan Wang 5 ship to Sri Lanka, the ship in question is still moving towards Hambantota port.
The media reports revealed that the ship is sailing at a speed of 26 kilometers per hour in the sea near Indonesia today at 10 am.
It has been indicated that the ship will arrive at Hambantota port on Thursday at 10.30 am Indian time.
However, another media report indicates that this vessel changed its route to arrive at Hambantota port.
According to Maritimeoptima.com, a website related to vessels, the Chinese vessel is currently about 600 nautical miles away from Hambantota port and has been seen slowing down.
