CANBERRA, Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. has no closer allies than Australia, visiting U.S. President Barack Obama said on Wednesday, adding that his 26-hour trip to Australia indicates the U.S. is stepping up its commitment in Asia-Pacific.

In a press conference held after holding bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Julia Gillard, the pair announced the two countries have agreed to increase joint military initiatives to enhance the alliance between the two nations.

From 2012, the U.S. will boost its military activities in Australia in stages.
