The Chinese Defense Ministry has denied reports on the construction of a military base in Afghanistan.


The information that China is building a military base in Afghanistan is groundless.
- said the military at a press conference in response to the relevant question. As the representative of the defense department noted, the parties are engaged in “ordinary military cooperation,” China is supporting Afghanistan in building national defense and fighting terrorism.

Earlier, the Ferghana news agency reported that China is building a military base for the Afghan armed forces in the northern province of Badakhshan, while the authors referred to a representative of the Afghan Defense Ministry, General Davlat Waziri. As the representative of the Afghan Ministry of Defense told the agency, the Chinese side finances the project, and also assumes the material and technical equipment of the facility with everything necessary, including weapons and equipment.

As Fergana notes, the Chinese government took this step to prevent militants from among the Uighurs and other extremists from entering the territory of the PRC, TASS reports.

    If our borders are one thing ... and if somewhere else, then this is a headache for the United States.

      Simply, the Chinese can put their trap on the border with Afghanistan, in order to avoid importing problems.

    China is supporting Afghanistan in building a national defense and combating terrorism.
    Simple support and nothing more - a Chinese view of the situation. But if China "supports" the Afghans, then not for beautiful eyes, but for its far-reaching interest.

      In this case, everything is like two and two.
      Afghan analysts believe that China, with the help of the army and other law enforcement agencies of Afghanistan, is trying to prevent the Uyghur militants from entering its territory, most of which have now joined ISIS. The siloviki proceed from the fact that the largest group of Uyghur militants is already in the Afghan province of Badakhshan, and it is within its power to carry out a quick transition to China.

        I support: Satanovsky cited the opinion of his experts that "
        there is such a geographical location that instead of building a defensive fortified area on its border, it is more rational to capture the adjacent Afghan gorge and build a defense on the other side. Yes, nominally they occupy part of Afghanistan. But from a geological point of view, their actions are very correct and reasonable. This is not an occupation of all of Afghanistan with all the subsequent problems. This is an exclusively local task, with local and more than achievable goals. Also, due to geological features, this will not make the defense "loose", but just the opposite - it will allow you to "rigidly" block the external borders of the occupied zone with tight control inside. In the most severe version, military closure of the external border will be possible with the complete extermination of terrorists trying to infiltrate

        I just didn’t understand - and when did the Chinese from Kalash move to the M-4? recourse
