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.
