US seeks to expand Asia ‘alliances’ amid rising tensions with China

No Comments

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has met with Thailand’s prime minister as part of a broader strategy to develop Washington’s “alliances and partnerships” in the region amid rising tensions with China.

Thailand and the United States are longtime military allies, but their relations somewhat cooled after the 2014 coup that brought Prayuth Chan-ocha to power. The two countries were close allies during the Vietnam War, and in 2003, Washington designated Thailand a major non-NATO ally.
