A Chinese research vessel entered Sri Lanka's Chinese-run southern port of Hambantota Tuesday, officials said, despite concerns from India and the United States.

The Yuan Wang 5 was allowed to dock on the condition it will not carry out any research while in Sri Lankan waters, port officials said following consultations with India, the United States and China.
