The United States President Obama made a tour to India, Indonesia, South Korea, Japan and attended the G20 summit and APCE held in Yokohama during November 4th to 14th. This is Obama’s second visit to Asia Pacific areas after he becomes President of the United States.
Before Obama’s visit, many international opinions began to pay attention to the reason why he visited around China. During the process of visiting, some of Obama’s words such as “the lack of freedom of prosperity is poverty” is considered to innuendo China. On the press conference in Seoul, Obama and CCTV reporter’s “debate” is also a hot topic for people.
The visit to India is important for Obama which is considered as the evidence of America’s “containment”. Obama praised India as “India is not a rising but have been rised country”. He also thinks that the relationship between America and India is indispensable in 21st century. In the joint statement, the relationship between them has been considered as the global strategic partnership in the 21st century. Meanwhile, Obama also brought a true gift for India and almost satisfied all the desires of India.
New York Times says on November 8th the “heating” of the relationship between America and India can strengthen the cooperation and another intention is to against China. However, the India media are delighted to think that the help of America will strengthen the deterrent capability of China.
Indonesia, the world’s most populous country, is also the country where Obama once spent his childhood. Such a country is surely very important for America which wants to co-opted Southeast Asian countries. In the meeting with Naoto Jan, China once again becomes the central issues. In the controversy between China and Japan, Obama means to support Japan all the time. Aiming at China’s “limit the export of rare earth”, America agreed to have a talk with the leaders.
Generally speaking, the purpose of Obama’s tour to Asia is to carry out the “return to Asia” policy. After 9/11, the foreign policy of America was focus on the Middle East. But with the development of the economic, China and the Asia-Pacific countries has established a more closely and comprehensive relationship. And the influence in Asia Pacific is strengthened little by little.No matter what is the intention of Obama’s visit to Asia Pacific countries, the purpose is to improve the economic of America, even the whole world.
