BEIJING: Chinese authorities have rejected rumours that it is plotting to establish a military base in Gwadar.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang termed the media reports in this connection as unnecessary speculations.
She was briefing the press in Beijing on Wednesday.
Lu Kang said the building of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is in the common interests of the countries along the route.
“I think it is necessary for the outside world to make too many guesses in this regard,” he said.
