Defense Secretary Leon Panetta traveled last week to the Asia Pacific Region, making stops in Australia, Thailand, and Cambodia. The Secretary, along with Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, met with their Australian counterparts for the 2012 Australia-United States Ministerial Consultations where a number of agreements were reached that will lead to further cooperation between the two countries military forces.
Additionally, Secretary Panetta met with defense ministers from 10 countries that are apart of the Association of Southwest Asian Nations in Cambodia where it was agreed the U.S. will participate in three Southeast Asian military exercises next year.
