Pence told reporters in Jakarta that it was a “strategic partnership” between the U.S. and ASEAN.

“Our relationship has benefited both ASEAN and the United States.”

Trump is scheduled to make his first foreign trip at the end of May when he travels to Brussels for a meeting with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization heads of state. Press secretary Sean Spicer said the meeting will “reaffirm our strong commitment to NATO, and to discuss issues critical to the alliance, especially allied responsibility-sharing and NATO’s role in the fight against terrorism.”
