MANILA - The Philippines is ready to help the United States as it aligns its defenses against threatened attacks by North Korea, the foreign minister said, hinting at the possibility of opening more Philippine bases to the US military.

US forces have previously used military bases and civilian airports in the Philippines to repair and refuel aircraft and warships deployed in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The US has ships in Subic, the former home of the US 7th Fleet, and aircraft at the nearby Clark airfield, another former US base on the main island of Luzon.
