Chinese warships spotted again at Cambodia naval base

The Chinese navy continues to access Cambodia’s Ream Naval Base, with at least two vessels recently confirmed at the facility.

Upgrades at the Cambodian base are underway with Beijing’s financial assistance. Chinese warships first visited Ream in early December. The latest sighting from March 20 comes amid U.S. concerns that China is building a facility at the base for its exclusive use.

In images obtained by Nikkei, one vessel is identified as Chinese navy corvette Wenshan, flying the flags of China and the People’s Liberation Army Navy.
