United States deploy spy planes to Singapore

On 8 December 2015 USA and Singapore agreed on deployment of American P8 Poseidon maritime surveillance planes to Singapore. Activities of these surveillance planes are related to the American efforts directed at curbing China’s attempted expansion in the South China Sea, and to the wider geopolitical game ongoing in the Indo-Pacific Region.

P8 Poseidon planes are also deployed by USA from Philippines and Malaysia.
