    According to a Pentagon statement, the US disputed rumours that China had secured an agreement with Cuba to create a spy post on the island.

    China’s proposal to create an electronic spy base in Cuba, as reported by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) citing “US officials familiar with classified intelligence,” is “not accurate,” according to Pentagon spokesman Patrick Ryder.

    “Based on the facts we have, I can tell you that is not correct. “We are not aware of China and Cuba developing separate spy stations,” he added.

    “I would say that the relationship that those two countries share is something that we continuously monitor,” he continued.

    Ryder stated that they “certainly” know that China and Cuba have a relationship, but that the charges in the news do not represent the facts.

    He stated that they will continue to closely monitor “any concerning activities” by China in various regions of the world.

    According to The Wall Street Journal, Cuban and Chinese officials have struck an agreement in principle that involves the creation of a facility to perform what is known as signals intelligence collecting.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, China would give the poor island nation billions of dollars in exchange.
