NUSA DUA — US President Barack Obama arrived on Thursday on the Indonesian resort island of Bali for the East Asia Summit, which is expected to be dominated by a maritime dispute with China.

Air Force One touched down in Bali after a journey from Australia where Obama showcased a foreign policy shift towards Asia, which will see the US act as a counterbalance to China’s growing military and economic might.
