Central African Republic open to Russian military base

Amman, Moscow is considering the establishment of a military base in the Central African Republic (CAR), where Russian forces are already training local troops as part of a deal with Bangui.

Central African Republic Defense Minister Marie-Noelle Koyara said that the establishment of a Russian military base is possible under an agreement signed in August between Moscow and Bangui.

“We have not yet spoken about the concrete development of the base, but such a possibility is not excluded in the framework agreement,” Koyara said.
