Modi, Pence meet next week in Singapore

Washington, Nov 9 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US Vice President Mike Pence will have a bilateral meeting during the ASEAN and East Asia Summit in Singapore next week during which the two leaders are likely to discuss security in the Indo-Pacific.
Besides Modi, Pence will also meet Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Singapore premier Lee Hsien Loong, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Papua New Guinea's Prime Minister Peter O'Neill.
The White House on Thursday said Pence would be representing President Donal Trump in the Summits in Singapore and the APEC meeting in Papua New Guinea.
Alyssa Farah, press secretary for the Vice President, said Pence "will highlight American leadership in the region and reaffirm our commitment to freedom, economic prosperity, and security in the Indo-Pacific.
On the sidelines of the East Asia Summit in Singapore, India and three other "Quad" countries --the US, Japan and Australia -- will hold their next meeting maritime security and disaster relief initiatives as well as economic development projects in the region.
This will be Pence's third trip to the region as the Vice President and he will reaffirm President Trump's commitment to the final, fully verified denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
"He will also deliver the message that authoritarianism, aggression, and the disregard for other nations' sovereignty by any nation in the Indo-Pacific will not be tolerated by the United States," said Farah.
