Michel Arseneault of Radio France Internationale did a four minute interview with me on 11 May 2015 titled "Chinese Military Base on Cards in Horn of Africa." The request for the interview stemmed from the interview with Djiboutian President Ismail Omar Guelleh that China is in the process of negotiating with Djibouti for a military base there. Spokespersons in China have neither confirmed nor denied the discussions. The United States, France and Japan already have military bases in Djibouti.
Arseneault also published a piece on this subject titled "'Historic' Chinese Military Base to Open in Horn of Africa."
