    It had done a deal with the Yanks who wanted a base there to snoop on that part of the world. If that is guaranteed they may well give it up in time. Hopefully it will not be a repeat of giving up Hong Kong.

    Yeah the US wanted a listening station / airbase /  CIA torture chamber so they bullied a tiny power to bully an even tinier power.
