cv-1116_006-275x400This statement about “occupied territory” appears in the very biased and unflattering article about Sri Lanka in the November 2016 issue of “National Geographic” (which focuses on travel to Mars). It is on page 108 of the printed magazine. See below to access it online.

I am confused.

Since when did Sri Lanka have “occupied territory”?

Does France have “occupied territory”?

Does Italy have “occupied territory”?

So why does Sri Lanka have “occupied territory”?

It was one UNIFIED country when it gained Independence on February 4, 1948.

That land mass, as of February 4, 1948, has not changed.

So where is this “occupied territory”?


I found a copy, from “National Geographic” themselves, online!
