Trump: ‘We’ll Partner with Friends and Allies To Pursue a Free and Open Indo-Pacific Region’
TRUMP: "And when necessary to fight, to overpower, and to always, always, always win. Right? This is the heritage of the American armed forces, the greatest force for peace and justice the world has ever known. Free nations must be strong nations. And we welcome it with our allies from Europe to Asia renew their commitment for peace through strength. We seek peace and stability for the nations of the world including those right here in this region. And it’s a great region. As Americans celebrate veterans day this month we honor all who have sacrificed to make peace and stability possible. We pay tribute to every proud American who has worn the uniform and served our country. Today many nations of the Indo-pacific are thriving because of the sacrifices made by American service members and our allies and because of the sacrifices all of you continue to make each and every day. Here in Japan we have seen the amazing things that are possible when a people are free and in independent. Over the course of a single lifetime the Japanese people have built one of the most successful societies and nation in the world. Over the next ten days we travel to South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines. We will seek new opportunities for cooperation and commerce. And we will partner with friends and allies to pursue a free and open indo-pacific region."
