US Acting Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Alice G. Wells says the United States is – and will continue to be – an Indo-Pacific power.

She said this addressing the "Indian Ocean Conference 2017" which was held in Colombo today (01). "Our partnerships and shared strategic interests in this region remain as compelling as ever", said Wells.

Speaking on Sri Lanka, Wells sated that they are also expanding their navy-to-navy relationship with Sri Lanka, with their first-ever naval exercise set for October. 

Furthermore, she voiced that they hope that one day in the not too distant future, all the navies of this region can jointly participate in exercises and coordinate maritime activities to build collective capacity and uphold international standards.
