President Obama to visit Asia, demonstrate commitment to obtaining Congress’s ratification of TPP

NHK reported online this afternoon that Deputy National Security Advisor Rhodes told reporters on Monday that President Obama will visit China and hold talks with President Xi on Sept. 3 and exchange views with him on bilateral cooperation against global warming and China’s maritime advancement in the South China Sea. The senior White House official also disclosed that the President will deliver a speech on Asia in Laos, demonstrate his commitment to obtaining congressional approval for the TPP during his term, and call on Asian nations to work toward the effectuation of the deal. Noting that both U.S. presidential nominees have expressed opposition to the TPP, the network said attention will be focused on the President’s remarks.
