Where is Obama in Asia today?

(CNN) -- U.S. President Barack Obama's ten-day trip to India, Indonesia, South Korea and Japan includes a G-20 summit, an Asia-Pacific Economic Council summit, and bilateral talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao and at least five other leaders.

"If you look at the trend lines in the 21st century, the rise of Asia, the rise of individual countries within Asia, is one of the defining stories of our time," Ben Rhodes, the deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, said last week.

"We see core U.S. national interests that will be advanced by us playing a key role in helping to shape the future of the region and making clear that we're an Asian and a Pacific power," he added.
