White House Touts Trilateral Cooperation with S. Korea, Japan as Key Feat İn Indo-Pacific Strategy


A White House official on Monday highlighted strengthened trilateral cooperation with South Korea and Japan among key achievements of the Joe Biden administration’s Indo-Pacific Strategy unveiled two years ago.

During a press briefing, John Kirby, the National Security Council coordinator for strategic communications, catalogued key examples of progress in the strategy that Washington rolled out to deepen engagement with the region, which it has cast as the “epicenter” of geopolitics in the 21st century.

“The president hosted the leaders in Japan and South Korea to Camp David and really got not only significant developments in terms of our bilateral relationship with each country, each ally, but improved opportunities to get trilateral cooperation in a much better place than it’s ever been,” he said.

“I could go on and on, including adding capabilities in and around the Korean Peninsula to keep a better eye on what (North Korean leader) Kim Jong-un is doing and of course, bolstering all the rest of our alliances and partnerships in the region,” he added.
