Philippines Announces Locations of Four New U.S. Military Bases

HeadlineApr 04, 2023

The government of the Philippines has announced the location of four new U.S. military bases. The sites will be on the island of Luzon, facing north toward Taiwan, and on Palawan, near the disputed Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. This comes after the Biden administration in February reached an agreement with the administration of Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. to give the U.S. access to the military bases, amid rising tensions between Washington and Beijing. Protesters have condemned the move, demanding U.S. troops leave the Philippines.
