The US and the Philippines signed an agreement Monday which will allow a larger presence of American troops in the military bases of the Asian nation. The agreement was signed a few hours after US President Barack Obama arrived in Manila on the last leg of his Asian tour. "The Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement recognizes that we can do more to promote peace and security in the region," US Ambassador to the Philippines, Philip Goldberg, said at the brief signing ceremony. The defense minister of the Asian country affirmed that the pact aims to "develop an alliance" between two countries that will make "infrastructure and equipment available when needed".
