(August 31, 2021) Biden's fault lines in SE Asia

Vice President Kamala Harris was right in stating that when the history of the 21st century is written, most of it will be centred right here in the Indo-Pacific. But she forgot to add that the approach taken by the US will also be mentioned because of its many fault lines. Three points can be discerned when it comes to the Biden administration's attitude towards the region.

First of all, it was unfortunate that Ms Harris embarked on her week-long trip to Southeast Asia after the Afghan debacle. The trip could have been postponed but she went ahead anyway. The Biden administration did not want to miss the opportunity because for nearly seven months there had been no communication at the top level between President Joe Biden and regional leaders. As such, dispatching Ms Harris was the correct decision.
