China started building a base in Djibouti

31
China began construction in Djibouti of the point of logistics of its Navy in accordance with the previously signed agreement, reports MIC with reference to the representative of the PLA Wu Qin.


Djibouti President Ismail Omar Gelle and PRC Chairman Xi Jinping

“China and Djibouti, during friendly consultations, reached a consensus on the issue of building a security center in China in Djibouti. This facility will be used mainly to provide recreation, recruitment and material supplies for Chinese military units performing ship security, peacekeeping and humanitarian rescue missions in the Gulf of Aden and the waters off the coast of Somalia, ”said Qian.

“Currently, construction of the zero cycle has begun at this facility, the Chinese side has sent part of the staff to conduct the relevant work,” he said.

Currently, there are also bases in the USA and France in Djibouti. The president of a country located in the Horn of Africa, said in early February that the PRC also had the right to set up its base in Djibouti in order to "defend its interests, like everyone else."

    That's right: China is acquiring its bases. And the mattresses will shut up here and will not speak.

        After 10 years, China will not only surround us. This is one of the reasons for the existence and development of our strategic missile forces.

        Greetings A hi
        There is nothing permanent in the world ... At the moment, China's access to the international sea is in the hands of the Russian Federation and its allies, the world "Sea hegemon" in the form of the United States, with its aircraft carrier groups dangling around the world, the PRC is starting to squeeze (even if this is only the beginning of the path) The Chinese dragon has broken through its "Coastal Shell" and will appear in economically / geopolitically advantageous areas of the world. I think it will appear in Syria / Libya over time, BUT not now China is waiting for the storm to calm down and the whole world, vigorously discussing the struggle between the Bear and the Bald Eagle, will not pay much attention to the rings of the Chinese dragon with which he braided the globe.
        Mao made a covenant of his nation before his death — Work hard for the development of your country and DO NOT get into world squabbles ahead of time ... Now China is fighting with Japan / Vietnam / Thailand and the USA supporting them in its coastal zone, however the fact of opening the base described in the article gives true plans of the Dragon ...

        P.S. I repeat at the moment for Russia and the CSTO this is a positive moment, because an extra headache will not hurt our "Probable Partners" ...

        And here the “democrats” from the Gaidarovs' sect “howled the psalm“ The old song about the main thing ”- we need to deal with the economy, leave Syria until, according to Khrushch’s precepts, they caught up with the USA in the economy. since the times of the USSR - enough to feed everyone in the whole world and ..... Russia has GONE from the richest African states, where the influence was extracted with the blood of military specialists and Cuban volunteers by the way.

        Yes - the Chinese took the first timid step to protect their investment in the African raw materials sector.

        I don’t quite agree with you. As far as I remember, ours currently have at least two major bases in Syria (and this is an opportunity to keep a fleet and aircraft in the Mediterranean for its support), as well as a base in Kamrani (and this allows partial control of the Indian Ocean).
        Thank God and especially Joseph Vissarionovich, we have access to the Pacific Ocean through the southern Kuril Islands. Well, in the Atlantic, what can I say, in the 90s they asked ... they had bases in Cuba, but now they cannot agree.
        So, although not everything is as smooth as we would like, but in general, not everything is as bad as it could be.
        Well, there is always where to develop. Won and Argentina looks at GDP with loving eyes, strokes and spawns on a small stretch of coast with a bay.
        Let's see, I personally think that GDP will not miss its

      Greetings Eugene hi
      Then you got a little excited ... Why are we in Kiev, a million troops of the PRC? Then you can’t get them out of there by Makar ... Here, next to the USA, it’s -Yes! Close to Australia -Yes! close to Britain -Yes! And Kiev, like all former Ukraine, is the sphere of OUR economic / geopolitical / military interests ...

        According to UN documents, Ukraine is a region of Russia, since there is no demarcation of the border and a number of state-forming documents have not been drawn up, which is why all the actions of the USA, EU, NATO and other states are interference in the internal affairs of Russia, as UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon explained after visit to Ukraine in early January 2016, after a visit to Kiev. And Crimean affairs are an internal affair of Russia, but not of the world community.

    Soon in Djibouti there will be: "Each creature has a pair", it's time for us to think, maybe in Yemen, on the island of Sokotor or on Perima, to place something like that, like familiar places.

    As Heinrich Müller-Bronevoy used to say: "The last is remembered, Stirlitz ..."
    "Protect your interests like everyone else." And how is this to be understood? You girls of easy virtue, not politicians. Give me a penny, and you will become devout communists ... You won't give a penny, you will get enemies in the bay. Than to feed the parasites, so it is better to arm the seamen of the merchant fleet, and to score on all sorts of Lloyds, you never know what they said, invented, wrote there? All grimy trash insolently moors to the ship on a rubber (!) Boat, and we, you know, don't touch them with a finger, is that normal? Give the AK sailors at least, and piracy will disappear.

    The main headache of China now is not the Americans (because they are economically interdependent), but the Islamic threat. Do not forget about the Xinjiang Territory.

    In any case, it is better to have Chinese bases than American ones on our perimeter. Of the two evils, the lesser, and not the fact that it is evil.

    China lives off free shipping. Almost everything that it produces is transported by sea. Suez is a strategic passage of Chinese goods to Europe. Djibouti is the control of the Red and Arabian Seas. The disputed islands are the control of the South China Sea. It remains to establish a base in the Strait of Malacca and in the Sri Lanka - Maldives region and the entire China-Mediterranean Sea route will be under the control of the Chinese Navy. T.ch. nobody surrounds anyone here (maybe a little India), here they cut a corridor along which maritime trade takes place.
