MANILA, Philippines — US President Barack Obama visits Manila as the last stop in his fifth Asia Pacific trip, which is a manifestation of his administration’s rebalancing to the region.
“It makes up in part for the trip he was not able to take last fall because of the government shutdown, with the stops in Malaysia and the Philippines, and also allows us to go visit two of our closest allies in the world, the Republic of Korea and Japan,” Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, said in a press briefing in Washington last week.
