On June 7, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian was asked to respond to a Washington Post report about China “secretly building a naval facility” in Cambodia.
The Post report focused on a Beijing-financed revamp of Cambodia’s Ream Naval Base. Citing anonymous Western officials, the story said China will get “exclusive use” of part of the base.
China is building a PLA naval base in Cambodia, reports Washington Post. Would be China’s second overseas military base (the other is in Djibouti).
