I'll be going from here to Alaska to speak to several thousand of our troops in Alaska because I'm not going to be able to get back to the site where it occurred. Every year, I'm usually at one of the sites where that act -- where the terrorist act occurred. But you were generous to think of us. 2

We last saw each other at the G7. And you emphasized that we have to stand together and we have to stand strong and shoulder to shoulder. You know, that was -- our new Comprehensive Strategic Partnership -- that's what it's all about because we're both Pacific powers and advancing a free and open Indo-Pacific is overwhelmingly in our interest, as well as, quite frankly, in the interests of the whole world. It's in the interest of the whole world. 3
