The continuing impact of 9/11 and the subsequent anti-terrorism campaign have perceptively influenced U.S. security strategy and bilateral relationships with key Asian countries. While the United States has been “the” regional power since the end of World War II, there is some uncertainty about the relevance of that power at a time when Asian nations are attempting to foster greater regional cooperation and forge a stronger regional identity.
Given the political, economic, and security interests of the United States in the region, it is essential that both Americans and Asians contribute to solving problems and addressing challenges of mutual concern — from stability on the Korean peninsula, conflict in Afghanistan, and the global war on terror to energy security, environmental degradation, and trade.
