Nicaragua Opens the Door to the Chinese Building Military Bases

From an article by the Associated Press reporting on Nicaragua's deal with a Chinese company to build a canal to compete against the Panama Canal:
Last year, Ortega's allies in Congress fast-tracked legislation granting HKND a 50-year concession, renewable for another 50, to build and operate a canal in return for a payment of $10 million a year once it's up and running. The law lets HKND develop ancillary projects — ports, an airport, roads, a railway — even if it [the canal] doesn't get built.
(Underline added).

H/t SNAFU!
