Obama's Asia trip aims to reassure partners

Japan first stop for US president in a region where some doubt whether his words will be matched with action.

    US President Barack Obama is set to touch down in Japan on the first leg of an official visit to Asia.

    The aim of the trip, beginning on Wednesday, is to reassure partners about his country's continuing commitment to the region. However, some doubt whether Obama's words will be paired with action.
