US President Obama arrives in Thailand

Obama visits Asian countries in an attempt to show the US "pivot" in foreign policy towards the region.

    In his first trip abroad after re-election, President Obama has dubbed himself the first "Pacific" president.

    The trip is meant to be a sign that the US administration is "pivoting" towards Asia, and branching its foreign policy away from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
