Australia mejorará sus bases militares, expandirá juegos de guerra con EUA

April 28, 2021 - Australia está invirtiendo A$747 millones ($580 millones) para modernizarcuatro bases militares en el norte de su territorio y expandir los ejercicios conjuntos con Estados Unidos, informó el miércoles el primer ministro Scott Morrison.

The announcement comes amid an increasingly bitter diplomatic and trade spat with China, and a rise in regional tensions over Taiwan, according to Reuters.

Morrison said an airstrip in the Northern Territory will be lengthened to support larger aircraft, firing ranges overhauled and new training facilities set up for defence personnel and U.S. marines.

The military upgrades will begin this year and be finished by 2026.

The funds are part of an Australia defence plan that will see Canberra spend $270 billion in the next decade to improve long-range strike capabilities, Reuters said.
