U.S. Indo-Pacific Commander, Admiral Phil Davidson makes Visit to Mongolia
Admiral Philip S. Davidson, the Commander of United States Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM), arrived in Mongolia on Thursday, June 13.
While in Mongolia, Admiral Davidson will meet with His Excellency Khaltmaagiin Battulga, President of Mongolia, high-level Mongolian government officials and military personnel, participate in the opening ceremony of Khaan Quest, a multinational peacekeeping exercise co-sponsored by U.S. Indo-Pacific Command hosted by the Mongolian Armed Forces, and meet with the Ambassador of the United States to Mongolia Michael S. Klecheski.
The strategy in the Indo-Pacific continues to be a platform for promoting a free and open international order. That framework is based on strong partnerships and seeking ways to further meaningful engagement between countries like Mongolia and the United States.
U.S. Indo-Pacific Command’s area of responsibility encompasses about half the earth’s surface, stretching from the waters off the west coast of the United States to the western border of India, and from Antarctica to the North Pole. USINDOPACOM is one of six geographic Unified Combatant Commands of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Admiral Davidson is the senior U.S. military authority in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region and reports to the President of the United States through the Secretary of Defense. USINDOPACOM is supported by four component commands: U.S. Pacific Fleet, U.S. Pacific Air Forces, U.S. Army Pacific and U.S. Marine Forces, Pacific. These commands are headquartered in Hawai’i and have forces stationed and deployed throughout the region.
