U.S. plans to build a US$1.5 M naval base in Saona island

Santo Domingo. Dominican Navy Chief of Staff Nicolas Cabrera announced yesterday that the U.S. Southern Command is planning to build a naval base and a deck in Catuano, in Saona Island, aimed at strengthening maritime surveillance in the Dominican East.
Vice Admiral Cabrera said the work will be coordinated through the delegation of the Military Assistance Advisory Group (MAAG) in the Dominican Republic.
During the ceremony, U.S. Embassy Public Affairs advisor Todd Haskell, on behalf of ambassador Raul Yzaguirre, highlighted "the importance of building a naval base and a deck in such a vulnerable area of the Dominican Republic."
