JON HUNTSMAN: Well, I think it's probably time to call this gathering to order. Thank you all for joining us here at the Atlantic Council. I'm delighted to welcome, introduce our two featured experts today, Rich Armitage and Kurt Campbell, friends both, who will take us through the key issues featured in their just released chairman statement and in the Atlantic Council's report "The Future of U.S. Extended Deterrence in Asia to 2025."
Now, this report is a product of an independent and bipartisan Atlantic Council Task Force, convened by the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security, to conduct analysis and make actionable recommendations regarding the challenges and opportunities to strengthen U.S. extended deterrence in East Asia over the coming decade.
