Is China's Massive New Military Base Near The North Korean Border An Indication That They Expect Kim Jong-Un's Regime To Collapse?
IBTimes: China secretly building new military facility near North Korea border – Report
The Chinese military is reportedly expanding its base to prepare for 'collapse' of Kim Jong-un's regime.
China is reportedly expanding its military facilities along the border it shares with North Korea amid ongoing tensions in the Korean peninsula following Pyongyang's missile launches and nuclear tests.
Chinese military authorities began evacuating local residents at Kaishantunzhen in Longjing city in the north of the border with North Korea to another area, according to a source who told the US international broadcaster Radio Free Asia. It is to reportedly accommodate heavy equipment for construction at the site.
The work to move people reportedly began in August in order to prepare for the construction of a large-scale military base in the region.
