Austrália vai melhorar as bases militares e alargar exercícios com os EUA U.S.

April 28, 2021 - A Austrália está a investir A$747 milhões ($580 milhões) para melhorar as bases militares e alargar os exercícios conjuntos com os Estados Unidos, na sequência da deterioração das relações diplomáticas com a China, disse na quarta-feira o Primeiro 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.
