Chinese Espionage in Florida: New Report Uncovers Spy Facilities in Cuba

Chinese Espionage in Florida: New Report Uncovers Spy Facilities in Cuba
Washington, Jul 3 (PTI): A recent report from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) reveals that China has established multiple spy facilities in Cuba, located less than 100 miles from Florida. This strategic move by China aims to bridge the gap in its access to ground stations in North America.

According to the CSIS report, these Cuban facilities could significantly enhance China's ability to monitor radio traffic and potentially intercept data transmitted by US satellites over critical military sites in the southern United States. Florida, in particular, is home to several vital installations, including the major space-launch complex at Cape Canaveral, the headquarters of both the US Southern Command and Central Command, and numerous submarine and other military bases.

Pentagon Press Secretary Maj Gen Pat Ryder confirmed at a news conference that China had completed an upgrade of its facilities in Cuba in 2019. "We know that the PRC is going to continue to try to enhance its presence in Cuba, and we will continue to keep working to disrupt that. So we're continuing to monitor this closely, taking steps to counter it," he stated.

The report has sparked significant concern among US officials. Congressman Carlos A Gimenez has called on the Biden Administration to take decisive action against Communist China and Castro's Cuba. "Communist China is proactively undermining the United States, and President Biden has failed to take action. I urge the Biden Administration to counter Communist China's use of Castro's Cuba as their satellite state in the Western Hemisphere and apply the full weight of US sanctions to prevent further expansion efforts," Gimenez asserted.

He further emphasized the growing threat posed by these espionage activities. "Anti-American adversaries are proactively undermining the United States by establishing spy bases to conduct espionage and cyberattacks. These growing threats to our homeland, only minutes away from the US mainland, must be met with strength," he urged.

New satellite images have shown an increase in the number of spy bases related to Communist China in Cuba, just 90 miles from US shores. These developments underscore the growing capabilities of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in the region, which poses a direct threat to the United States and, more specifically, the South Florida community.

The CSIS report detailed the locations of these military intelligence facilities, which are situated 90 miles from the US mainland and only 70 miles from the US Naval base at Guantanamo Bay. The facilities are found in Bejucal, El Salao, Wayay, and Calabazar. These bases enhance the CCP's ability to spy on American citizens and US intelligence agencies, effectively making the Cuban regime a proxy of the CCP.

As the situation unfolds, the Biden Administration faces increasing pressure to take robust measures against this new wave of Chinese espionage in Florida. The proximity of these facilities to key US military and intelligence sites heightens the urgency for a strong response to safeguard national security.
