U.S. Representative Mike Rogers (R-AL), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on a Wall Street Journal report which found that “China and Cuba have reached a secret agreement for China to establish an electronic eavesdropping facility on the island.”

“China has flown surveillance over the United States, they have sent spies to U.S. bases, they are shipping deadly fentanyl components to cartels in Mexico who bring it across the border into American communities, they’re building a port in the Bahamas, and are now building a base in Cuba – just miles from U.S. military assets in Key West.

“The Biden administration must take note that China’s military operations are not limited to the Indo-Pacific. China’s military is at our doorstep, in North America and throughout South America, and we cannot afford to ignore or overlook the threat. We must use every tool available to counter and deter China’s aggression.”
