What ties all of this together is one simple insight: when we work hand-in-hand with our friends, we are stronger and more secure than we could ever be on our own. And that’s what guides my approach to this most important region as Secretary of Defense.
 
The discrimination that some AAPI have recently endured in my country is unacceptable & frankly un-American. But we aren’t trying to hide our mistakes. When a democracy stumbles, everyone can see and hear it. It’s broadcast in loud & living color, not hushed up by the state.
 
The Myanmar military’s refusal to respect the inalienable rights of the Burmese people, and to defend their basic well-being, is flatly unacceptable. [...] We call on the Myanmar military to adhere to the ASEAN Five-Point Consensus and to forge a lasting peace.
 
But let me be clear: I am committed to pursuing a constructive, stable relationship w/ China, including stronger crisis communications w/ the PLA. Big powers need to model transparency & communication. We hope we can work together on common challenges, especially climate change.
 
Beijing’s claim to the vast majority of the South China Sea has no basis in international law. That assertion treads on the sovereignty of states in the region. We continue to support the region’s coastal states in upholding their rights under international law.
 
Integrated deterrence also means working with partners to deter coercion and aggression across the spectrum of conflict, including in the so-called “grey zone” where the rights and livelihoods of the people of Southeast Asia are coming under stress. #FreeandopenIndoPacific
 
I’m especially pleased that Singapore has chosen to invest in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. That’s going to boost our collective capabilities and open up new opportunities for high-end combined training.
 
Integrated deterrence means using every military & non-military tool in our toolbox, in lock-step with our allies & partners. It's about using existing capabilities, building new ones, and deploying them all in new & networked ways, all tailored to a region’s security landscape.
 
In just the past two months, we have shared more than 40 million COVID-19 vaccine doses throughout the Indo-Pacific region, including Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
 
Global recovery [from COVID-19] requires global vaccination. So we are rushing life-saving vaccine doses to the region. @POTUS has committed to deliver more than 500 million shots world-wide over the next year, and the Indo-Pacific is a top priority.
 
I’m here to represent a new American administration, but also to reaffirm enduring American commitments. Above all, I want to talk about the strategic imperative of partnership. I learned a core lesson over four decades as a soldier, in peace and in war: Nobody can go it alone.
 
Today is #KoreanWar Veterans Armistice Day; we remember those who fought, and we #HonorThem for their service and sacrifice. #NotForgotten
 
It was my honor to meet with Prime Minister @leehsienloong today. Singapore's leadership plays a very important role in advancing the shared principles that maintain regional stability, and I deeply value the strong partnership between us. (Video: Prime Minister’s Video Office)
 
As America’s 26th Secretary of the Air Force, Frank Kendall III’s decades of expertise and impact in service to our national security and defense make him an unmatched asset for the challenges we face today. No doubt, our Airmen, Guardians, and their families will be served well.
 
The U.S. and Singapore have a shared commitment to upholding a rules-based order in the Indo-Pacific. We will continue to modernize our defense partnership and work together to prepare for emerging challenges.

Before @USMC Gen. Louis H. Wilson Jr. became the highest ranking officer in the Corps, he was fighting to free Guam from Japanese influence during #WWII. His leadership & courage led the #Marines to victory in 1944 & earned him the #MedalofHonor: go.usa.gov/xFjhK.
 
The Americans with Disability Act was signed into law 31 years ago today. We celebrate the landmark legislation which ensures equal opportunities in education, employment, and other areas for people with a disability. #ADA31

Right now, I’m en route to Southeast Asia where I’ll be working to deepen America’s bonds with the allies and partners on whom our common security depends. Our network of alliances and friendships is an unparalleled strategic asset. #FreeandOpenIndoPacific defense.gov/Newsroom/Relea…

The UK’s report from the House of Commons Sub-Committee on Women in the Armed Forces is an important examination of sexual harassment and other abuses faced by women in uniform, with findings that mirror those addressed by the 90-Day IRC.
Replying to @DeptofDefense
We look forward to working with our UK allies to tackle these common challenges. @AthertonNWales @CommonsDefence

Agile Combat Employment exercises test the ability of the @usairforce to generate #airpower quickly, efficiently and repeatedly. Located in Alaska, @EielsonAirForce is able to test these concepts in an austere environment that simulates a deployed location.
 
When it comes to our allies and partners, I view us all as part of a team. That is who we are, and it is how we fight. Our allies and partners increase our capability and capacity, and it’s something we’re very proud of.
 
Alaska is a critical place on the globe. It’s the intersection of two areas of responsibility — @USNorthernCmd and @INDOPACOM — and it’s certainly a place that allows us to increase the competitive edge.

It was wonderful meeting some of the servicewomen and men at @EielsonAirForce base today. You all support programs and operations that are absolutely critical to maintaining our edge and deterring 21st century threats. Thanks for all that you do.
