Pompeo Announces Nearly $300 Million Investments in Asia-Pacific

SINGAPORE – United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Saturday in Singapore an investment of nearly $300 million to boost cooperation and security in the Asia-Pacific region.

The investment would “strengthen maritime security, humanitarian assistance and peacekeeping capabilities and enhance programs to counter transnational threats,” Pompeo said at a press conference on the sidelines of the meeting of the foreign ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and its partners that conclude on Saturday.

Pompeo arrived in Singapore on Friday to participate in an ASEAN-US meet.

He also met with his counterparts from other countries taking part in the meeting, such as Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam.

North Korea and the need to maintain sanctions on the Kim Jong-un regime is expected to dominate the agenda of Pompeo’s meetings in Singapore.
