Secretary Clinton delivering speech on America's Engagement in the Asia-Pacific.
Speaking on October 28th, 2010 at the start of an extensive tour of Asia and the Pacific, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said that the United States is working to sustain and strengthen its engagement in the region. “There are some who say that this long legacy of American leadership in the Asia-Pacific is coming to a close, that we are not here to stay,” Clinton said. “And I say look at our record. It tells a very different story.”
Clinton’s speech was hosted by the East-West Center in cooperation with Pacific Forum CSIS, the Pacific and Asian Affairs Council, the Japan-America Society of Hawaii, the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies, the APEC 2011 Hawai‘i Host Committee and the University of Hawai‘i.
