Mattis at Shangri La Dialogue – India Indispensable role in Maintaining Stability

Extracts from News Transcript - Remarks by Secretary Mattis at Shangri-La Dialogue - The United States is a Pacific nation, both in geography and outlook.  And from my first trips as secretary of Defense, and from Vice President Pence's first trips, Secretary of State Tillerson's trips, the American administration is demonstrating the priority that we place on relationships in the Asia-Pacific region, a priority region for us. That enduring commitment is based on strategic interests, and on shared values of free people, free markets and a strong and vibrant economic partnership, a partnership open to all nations, regardless of their size, their populations or the number of ships in their navies, or any other qualifier. And here I want to talk for a minute about China and the United States.  Because of its growing economic power, China occupies a legitimate position of influence in the Pacific. By further strengthening our alliances, by empowering the region, and by enhancing the U.S. military in support of our larger foreign policy goals, we intend to continue to promote the rules-based order that is in the best interest of the United States, and of all the countries in the region.
