Washington, DC: The United States has decided to shift its military bases to Australia and Pacific Islands as an attempt to counter the threats emanating from China.

The moves have been prompted by the US Department of Defense’s global posture review.

The review is classified, but a senior US defence official provided some details about the review’s findings, according to a report by the Hong Kong Post.
