During its first term (2009–12), the Obama administration focused its attention on Asia as an economically and politically dynamic region. In February 2009 US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made Asia the destination of her first diplomatic trip abroad, visiting China, Indonesia, Japan and the Republic of Korea (South Korea). In 2011 Clinton officially announced the strategic decision to ‘pivot’ US foreign policy towards the Asia–Pacific.1 The term ‘pivot to Asia’, however, was replaced in early 2012 by the term ‘rebalance to Asia’, mainly in order to ease European concerns about a reduced US-commitment to Europe. The second Obama administration increased its efforts to take into consideration China’s widespread concerns that the USA was resuming a policy of strategic encirclement, deepening military cooperation with many neighbours of China to constrain the rise of China.2
