U.S. Strategic Command, United States Pacific Command and U.S. Forces Korea co-hosted strategic consultations today with Republic of Korea Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, Gen. Lee, Sun Jin in #Guam. The consultations built upon our strong alliance with the ROK to protect our collective security interests. In addition to high-level talks on the importance of considering all options to address regional stability, the delegations visited B-1Bs at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, a THAAD Battery as well as Submarine Group Nine's USS Pennsylvania at Apra Harbor. The visit and tour of these strategic assets underscores the ironclad alliance between the U.S. and the ROK.

Submarine Group Nine's USS Pennsylvania (SSBN 735) arrived at Apra Harbor, Guam, for a scheduled port visit, Oct. 31. Ballistic missile submarines such as USS Pennsylvania are on patrol continuously, providing a critical, stabilizing and highly effective element of the U.S. nuclear deterrence force. The United States routinely and visibly demonstrates our commitment to our allies and partners through forward presence and operations of strategic forces, including SSBNs. This specific port visit complements the many military cooperation activities conducted between the U.S. and its ally and partner nations in the Indo-Asia-Pacific, and also provides an opportunity to exercise another base in the U.S. Pacific Command area of responsibility.
