Obama seeks to reassure partners on Asia trip

(Tokyo) – US President Barack Obama landed in Tokyo to launch an Asian tour dedicated to reinvigorating his policy of “rebalancing” US foreign policy towards a dynamic Asia. Obama landed aboard Air Force One to begin a state visit to Japan, which comes as regional tensions boil over maritime territorial disputes and fears that North Korea could soon carry out a new nuclear test.
Obama, whose tour of Asia will also take in South Korea, the Philippines and Malaysia, is the first sitting US president to explicitly affirm that hostile action against the island chain would prompt an American reaction.
Although China is not on his itinerary, its presence will be felt on every leg at a time of complex regional disputes and questions about US strategy.
In November, China declared an air defence identification zone over the East China Sea, including the skies above the islands.
