War games set amid sea row
MetadataShow full item record
The United States and the Philippines will double the size of their annual war games this month, with some exercises to be staged close to a South China Sea flashpoint. The 10-day exercises between the long-time allies will be held as fears grow in the Philippines that China is seeking to take control of the strategically vital and resource-rich sea. Nearly 12,000 soldiers will be involved in this year’s edition in several locations in the Philippines, including a naval station directly facing the disputed waters, military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Harold Cabunoc said.
