New Delhi: The newly-appointed chief of the United States Army today underlined the centrality of India and the Indo-Pacific in the US’ geostrategic worldview, and said that no one fights alone anymore.

During his first overseas visit after taking over as the US Army chief just five days, he participated into the Indo-Pacific Army Chiefs Conference (IPACC) in the national capital on Monday.

Addressing a press conference, he said, “The US Army is a global force. And we must be able to fight and win anywhere. But we know we don’t fight alone. We will fight with our joint teammates, alongside our allies and partners.”

Of the lessons learnt from the ongoing Ukraine war, General Randy George said the biggest one is the importance of partners and allies. “The biggest thing that we have seen is the importance of relationships… and having allies and partners together which I think is the biggest benefit that we are going to get out of this (the conference).”

The armies of India and the US are co-hosting the three-day conference of chiefs of armies and military delegates of 35 countries.

He said the Indo-Pacific is a critical priority for the US, and added, “That is why we are out here and why we exercise more than anywhere else in the Pacific.”

In a region where China is asserting itself militarily much strongly than ever before, General George—without naming the Asian giant—said, “The role of our armies is to hone our skills together. As we train and work with each other our confidence on one another grows as well and that confidence leads to unity and collective commitment across the region.”
