Head of US Pacific Command touts strong ties with Thailand – ABC News

The head of the U.S. Pacific Command is touting Washington’s “deep and enduring commitment” to Thailand.

Adm. Harry B. Harris spoke Tuesday at a naval base outside Bangkok as the U.S. and Thailand held their annual Cobra Gold joint military exercises.

Harris is the highest-ranking American official to attend the exercises since Thailand’s 2014 coup.

The U.S. is vying with an increasingly powerful China for regional influence in Asia.
