A Chinese military base for the island of Vanuatu?


Is China about to establish a military base on the Pacific island nation of Vanuatu? It depends whom you ask. Vanuatu and China on Tuesday denied a media report by Australia’s Fairfax Media that Beijing wanted to establish a permanent military presence in the Pacific island nation.

Australia’s Fairfax Media reported on Monday that China had approached Vanuatu to establish a permanent military presence in the South Pacific.

According to a report by Australia’s Fairfax Media published on Monday, the governments of China and Vanuatu have held preliminary discussions about this possibility.

But on Tuesday, both nations vehemently denied the reports. Vanuatu’s foreign minister, Ralph Regenvanu, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation that no talks had taken place. China’s defense ministry implied the report was false.

Fake News? Vanuatu and China on Tuesday denied a media report that Beijing wanted to establish a permanent military presence in the Pacific island nation.

A Chinese military presence on Vanuatu would have major implications for the island’s neighbors in the South Pacific, putting Chinese warships less than 1,553 miles from Australia’s coast.

I would say that if we are talking about, there is surely something going there! What do you think?
