DJIBOUTI – China intends to build a pier at its base in Djibouti so that People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) vessels can dock there, the South China Morning Post reported military sources as saying on 27 September.

“The Chinese navy needs a large-scale pier to offer logistical support for its flotillas conducting anti-piracy operations in Somali waters,” a source told the newspaper.

“The scale of the wharf should allow for the docking of a four-ship flotilla at least, including China’s new-generation Type 901 supply ship with a displacement of more than 40,000 tonnes.”

The work on the pier will not begin until the construction of accommodation for Chinese military personnel has been completed at the base, the South China Morning Post reported.

    Of course! The NEW FORCE from the EAST has already been in Africa without big noise but with firm, methodical, friendly handling of the ‘savage’ Africa, with the usual ‘grease’ under the table to hungry dictators and other interested bystanders to accelerate the take-over of spacious and natural mineral worth of Africa. If Africa has no use for AFRICANS (it goes without saying) in a hungry world, someone else will take over. without disturbing the Life Style of Africans as beggars and destitute of the World.
    WE ARE WHAT WE ARE. PROVE IT OTHERWISE. THE END
