0 Views· 02/06/23
The US has secured access to four additional military bases in the Philippines to monitor the Chinese in the South China Sea and around Taiwan.
With this deal, Washington has stitched the gap in the arc of US alliances stretching from South Korea and Japan in the north to Australia in the south.
The new additions and expanded access, according to a statement from Washington, will "allow more rapid support for humanitarian and climate-related disasters in the Philippines, and respond to other shared challenges".
The US already had limited access to five sites under the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA).
