2018-04-10 20:48

Q: What is your response to reports by Australian media saying that China is building a military base in Vanuatu? Do you think that Australia should worry about the large strategic infrastructure projects that China assists in the Southern Pacific region?

A: In one word, fake news.

You may have noted that the Vanuatuan Foreign Minister already made clarification in an interview with the media.
