BEIJING — China has kept on developing military bases in the South China Sea throughout 2017, a think tank has claimed in a new report.
A new Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative report says China has continued developing its bases in the South China Sea.
The country has reportedly installed wind turbines and a helipad at Tree Island, and towers on Triton Island, Reuters reported, citing the AMTI report. AMTI says China has continued development of Subi reef, creating underground tunnels for ammunition storage and installing further radar technology.
On Fiery Cross Reef, China has created underground tunnels for supply and ammunition storage, as well as a high-frequency radar array. The report says that China also created underground storage tunnels, missile shelters and radar arrays on Mischief Reef.
