From July 30-August 6, Secretary Pompeo and his wife, Susan traveled to Bangkok, Thailand; Sydney, Australia; and Pohnpei, the Federated States of Micronesia “to deepen our long-standing alliances and vibrant bilateral relations with these countries, and reaffirm our commitment to ASEAN, which is central to our vision for the Indo-Pacific region” according to state.gov. Enjoy some pics from the trip!
