The Philippines and Australia’s joint military training exercise has entered its third of five-days in Manila Bay.

The Philippine Navy says the exercise will help the two navies and coast guards work together, and improve maritime security and surveillance abilities. Around 350 troops are taking part.

Meanwhile, Philippine President Benigno Aquino III has arrived in Canberra, Australia, at the start of his visit to the country. He wants a new "strategic partnership" with Australia, which would mean Australia being his country’s third-closest ally after the US and Japan.

Earlier, Philippine media has reported the US’s nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, the USS George Washington will arrive in the Philippines Wednesday for a four-day visit. It’s said to be a goodwill visit to further enhance US-Philippines ties.
