Clinton and Carr talk
This week I have been meeting officials in the Obama Administration as well as other senior US political figures in Washington D.C.
On Tuesday, April 24, I met with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. I congratulated the Secretary on America’s renewed focus on the Asia Pacific as this is something Australia has long argued for. We’ve argued for the importance of Indonesia, for America involving itself more in this part of the world. Indeed, going back 100 years, Australia has wanted this, on security grounds.
The Secretary and I also discussed the transition in Afghanistan, North Korea and political reforms in Burma.
