U.S., Philippines agree on five base locations under defense deal

U.S., Philippines agree on five base locations under defense deal


"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States and the Philippines have agreed on five locations for U.S. military facilities in the Philippines under a security deal agreed amid rising tensions with China, a senior U.S. official said on Friday...."


"...In January, the Philippines said it had offered eights bases for U.S. use, including the former U.S. air force base of Clark and the former U.S. Navy base at Subic Bay, as well as two sites on Palawan island, near the South China Sea..."

Another source lists the 5 as Antonio Bautista Air Base; Basa Air Base, Fort Magsaysay; Lumbia Air Base; and Mactan-Benito Ebuen Air Base. Mostly Air - little in the way of Navy support.
