Some Chinese Muslims detained at Guantanamo Bay who have been offered resettlement in Palau are leery of moving to the tiny Pacific island nation for fear that it cannot protect them from China, Palau’s president said Tuesday.(…) [T]he men [a]re concerned about the island nation’s size and ability to provide for their safety.
“Some said (Palau) is too small,” he said. “And when they showed pictures of Palau, there was a photo showing some Chinese signs. And that led them to ask, “Do you have an army? Do you have a navy?” because they are concerned about their safety from the Chinese.”
