WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will maintain its commitment to allies in the Asia Pacific region and military relations with partners will remain strong, Admiral Harry Harris, commander of the U.S. Pacific Command, said on Tuesday, amid uncertainty over President-elect Donald Trump's foreign policy.

"The need for and the value of American engagement in the Indo-Asia Pacific is convincing," Harris said, speaking at an event in Washington, D.C., held by the publication Defense One.
