The Chung Hoon, one of three US States warships which are set to arrive in the country, will participate in a 10-day joint naval exercise with the Philippine Navy amid tensions with China over the Spratly Islands. Around 800 American troops will join the 300 Philippine soldiers, with two Philippine naval ships and several patrol boats. (Mousa/NPPA Images)
