BEIJING, April 10, (ChinaMil) -- The Australian media report completely did not accord with the facts, said Senior Colonel Ren Guoqiang, spokesman for China's Ministry of National Defense, in a written statement on Tuesday.

Ren Guoqiang made the remarks in response to a media report given by Australia’s Fairfax Media earlier on Tuesday that China was negotiating with Vanuatu to establish a military base in the Pacific nation.
