Soon after the November 6 mid-term elections in the U.S., key regional summits such as the East Asia Summit will take place in the Indo-Pacific. Vice President Pence will represent the U.S. instead of President Trump. Given Pence’s recent hard-hitting speech on China, talk of a second possible summit between Presidents Trump and Kim Jong-un, ongoing mutual tariff hikes by Washington and Beijing, and continued maritime incidents in the South China Sea, how should we assess the state of U.S.-Indo-Pacific relations? Satu Limaye will offer a perspective on this question.
