Obama lands in Malaysia

Reuters , Saturday 26 Apr 2014

US President Barack Obama arrived in Malaysia on Saturday for a visit aimed at energising relations with the predominantly Muslim nation and re-focusing an Asian tour repeatedly distracted by foreign-policy crises elsewhere.

Obama becomes the first serving US president to visit since Lyndon Johnson in 1966, looking to underscore security ties amid concern over China's territorial ambitions and convince a sceptical Malaysian government to support his troubled plans for a Pacific-wide trade pact.
