WASHINGTON--

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., visited Australia Feb. 3-6 where he met with defense officials, to include his Australian counterpart Chief of the Defence Force Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin.

The two military leaders discussed a wide range of issues, including the global threat of terrorism and regional security.

The U.S.-Australia alliance plays a critical role in maintaining peace and stability in the region and the visit served to strengthen that alliance as the U.S. and Australia increase collaboration in counter-terrorism efforts and regional capacity building among other areas of mutual interest.
