China has signed a secret deal to gain exclusive rights to a Cambodian naval base, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.
Hun Sen's denial came a day after the Wall Street Journal cited anonymous USA and allied officials as saying that China has signed a secret agreement allowing its armed forces to use Cambodia's Ream naval base. In January, Cambodian media speculated that a Chinese naval base on Cambodian shores would give Beijing access to a new flank in the contested South China Sea region, where China is engaged in a continuing row with the United States over freedom of navigation issues.

Although Chinese and Cambodian officials have denied the pact, the USA has expressed concern it will harm regional peace and security by providing China with a key site in its quest for a global network of military and dual-use facilities.
