Oman: UK plans joint training facility
The UK is to open a joint military training facility in the port city of Duqm in March 2019, in a further sign of London’s desire to expand its presence in the Gulf region. The new base will reportedly be able to handle several hundred troops but will not involve the construction of extensive infrastructure; instead, the UK will rely on its Joint Logistics Base in Duqm to bring in troops and equipment as needed.
