  • Secretary of State John Kerry's Remarks on U.S. Vision for Asia-Pacific Engagement

    Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests all, it’s a great, great pleasure for me to be able to be here. And President Morrison, thank you very much for that generous introduction. I appreciate it very much. Charles was way ahead of the curve, folks, in seeing the trend towards regionalism in the Asia Pacific in the early 1990s. And he was calling for community-building within East Asia well before it became a standard topic of discussion on the think tank circuit. So clearly, and to everyone’s benefit, he’s had an ability to focus on the long game. And that is a talent that he actually shares with one of the founding fathers of this institution, a former colleague, beloved to all of you, who became a great friend to me, and that’s Senator Dan Inouye. During my sort of latter years, I actually moved up to about seventh in seniority or something in the United States Senate, and had I not been appointed to this job, with all of the retirements that are taking place, I don’t know, I might have been third or fourth or something, which is kind of intimidating.  Read more »

  • Supporting Young Southeast Asian Leaders

    The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) celebrated its 47th anniversary on August 8th. It was created to promote greater cooperation and improve the lives of the people of its member countries, now 10 strong -- a region of 620 million. Millions of Americans trace their ancestry to the region and it's our fourth largest trading partner, so what happens there matters to the American people. The United States works closely with ASEAN and its people on important issues from education to environmental protection to economic development. President Obama launched the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) in 2013 to strengthen youth’s involvement in shaping the future of ASEAN, and its identity as a cohesive community. - See more at: http://blogs.state.gov/stories/2014/08/09/supporting-young-southeast-asian-leaders#sthash.VZMC4a7K.0iJgAvrf.dpuf  Read more at DIPNOTE: U.S. Department of State Official Blog »
