SPUTNIKNEWS – May 7, 2017: The United States has established hundreds of military facilities all over the globe and will only build more, President of the Brazilian Center for Solidarity and Struggle for Peace (Cebrapaz) Antonio Barreto told Sputnik Mundo, saying that overseas military bases present a threat to global peace and stability and need to be closed down.
“We, peace advocates, urge to close foreign military bases. A large-scale campaign is needed right now since we are on the verge of a major armed conflict on the Korean Peninsula which could see the use of nuclear weapons. US warships, nuclear submarines and troops are already there. They pose a threat to China, all nations in the region and the peace in the world,” he said.
“These bases present a threat to humanity. American imperialism has promoted them. Right now, the US has more than 800 military bases on all continents. The Trump administration does not intend to reduce their number. Instead they are building new ones as seen in Argentina, Colombia and other nations, primarily located in South America,” he said.
