China and Cuba are reportedly negotiating to build a new joint military training facility after Washington said that Beijing has a spy base on the island.

The two countries were holding advanced talks about opening the facility in northern Cuba, the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday cited U.S. officials as saying, adding that it could pave the way for Beijing to station troops there permanently and expand espionage activities.

The U.S. was in contact with Cuban officials about preventing the plans from going forward, the Journal reported.

Earlier this month, a senior U.S. official said in a statement issued on the condition of anonymity because of the matter’s sensitivity that intelligence indicated China has long maintained espionage facilities in Cuba and that they were expanded in 2019, according to Bloomberg.
