WASHINGTON - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has put out a statement outlining her trip to the Indo-Pacific region.

Pelosi mentioned that the delegation had a fuel stop in Hawaii, where they were "honored with a briefing from USINDOPACOM Leadership, as well as a visit to the Pearl Harbor Memorial and the USS Arizona."
She added that they "look forward to productive meetings that will continue to inform Congress’s work to advance our values and interests and strengthen our partnerships in the region."
