On June 10, officials met for the third U.S.-Malaysia Senior Officials Dialogue at the Department of State. This was the second senior meeting between these U.S. and Malaysian officials in four months. The interagency delegations were led by Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Kurt M. Campbell and Secretary General for the Malaysian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Tan Sri Rastam Mohd Isa. The Dialogue follows the April 12 meeting in Washington between President Obama and Prime Minister Najib, in which the two leaders agreed to continue efforts to further strengthen the growing partnership between the United States and Malaysia.

During the Senior Officials Dialogue, the delegations exchanged views on a wide range of bilateral, regional, and global issues, including matters such as trade, security, ASEAN, regional architecture, nuclear non-proliferation, and climate change. The two sides agreed that the Dialogue provided an excellent venue to discuss further cooperation toward elevating the U.S.-Malaysian partnership, and that they would continue to meet on regular basis. The Senior Officials will also schedule additional exchanges of high-level visitors. The United States looks forward to continuing to engage with Malaysia on these issues and others in the months ahead.
