The United States has reaffirmed its steadfast commitment to the Indo-Pacific region, pointing to recent diplomatic activities as evidence of continuous dedication.

“We have not taken our eye off the ball when it comes to our efforts and our focus on the Indo-Pacific and the Asia region broadly,” stated Vedant Patel, Principal Deputy Spokesperson for the US Department of State, emphasizing the administration’s unwavering commitment.

Patel highlighted notable achievements, referencing President Biden’s initiatives, such as a groundbreaking trilateral summit at Camp David involving Japan and the Republic of Korea. Additionally, he mentioned a significant summit held in Woodside, California, between President Biden and the president of the People’s Republic of China, showcasing the administration’s proactive diplomatic approach.

“Let’s not forget that in the past year alone, you have seen this President convene a historic trilateral summit at Camp David between Japan and the Republic of Korea. You saw him hold a historic summit in Woodside, California, with the president of the People’s Republic of China,” he stated during a State Department briefing.

Patel highlighted Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s personal involvement, noting Blinken’s two visits to China in the past twelve months, along with visits by other administration members. These visits signify ongoing dialogue and engagement between the United States and China amid complex bilateral relations.

Furthermore, Patel emphasized the administration’s efforts to bolster regional partnerships, citing a historic trilateral summit involving Japanese and Philippine partners as evidence of collaborative efforts in the Indo-Pacific.

“Secretary Blinken himself, in the past twelve months, has been to China twice, as have other members of this administration. You saw this administration hold a historic trilateral summit between our Japanese partners and our partners in the Philippines,” Patel added.
