It has become clear that Australia and the United States can further strengthen their military ties amid increasing threats from China by frequently engaging in a wider range of joint military missions.
The largest bilateral exercise between Australia and the United States is currently underway in Shoalwater Bay, central Queensland, with nearly 17,000 troops at its pace.
Australians reported that talks were taking place prior to the Australian-US military representatives’ meeting in Washington next month.
As several Chinese craft vessels are currently monitoring joint operations off the Queensland coast, the changes that occur will undoubtedly be carefully monitored by Beijing.
