US considering seeking further expansion of Philippines base access, admiral says


Recommended Posts

MANILA, Philippines — The United States may seek access to more military bases in the Philippines under a joint defense agreement between the two countries, the chief of the U.S. Indo-Pacific command said on Thursday.

The Philippines has this year increased the number of bases accessible to the U.S. military from five to nine, a move that has riled regional power China, which sees the arrangement as provocative and likely to raise tensions.
