    if "the Chinese map" is this:
    and assuming the position of the base is where the light-blue panel points, then the base is in

    highlighted in dark-blue below:

    but "where the blue dot is" according to:
    is in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takhar_Province

    Yes, that map. I think you misunderstood the "blue dot". Its in the middle of the crosshair right of the green face. Not the blue loudspeaker icon. I marked a "blue dot", its actually a polygon, perhaps too small to be seen clearly, it looks like a small body of water.

    Correction: the location is supposed to be 10km south of where I marked.

    According to the key, green means Taliban territory.

    I really don’t see how this qualifies as a ‘Chinese base’ given that it will be manned by Afghan government forces.

    It would be manned by Afghan government forces but will also have a Chinese presence. Construction will mean Chinese contractors/army engineers, bringing in Chinese troops for security. Training of Afghan forces will be provided by China, necessitating Chinese troops.

    now recalled keywords "Badakshan" and "training"
    while reading
    "Over the past 96 hours in Afghanistan, the aircraft played a leading role against the Taliban, striking the militant group's training facilities in Badakhshan province with 24 smart bombs, U.S. Forces-Afghanistan said in a release."
