Asian Affairs

Special Assistant to
the President and Senior Director

The Asian Affairs Office of the National Security Council advises and assists the President and the National Security Advisor on all aspects of U.S. foreign policy with respect to the Asia-Pacific region, including Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia (including Indochina) and Oceania. The U.S. presence has been essential to maintaining the peace and security that has enabled most nations in the Asia-Pacific region to build thriving economies.

In addition to focusing on U.S. policy for the many bilateral relationships in the region, the Asian Affairs Office also advises the President on other issues such as regional security and institutions (APEC, the ASEAN Regional Forum), the North Korean nuclear problem (together with the Nonproliferation Directorate), and the promotion of human rights and democracy in the region.
