Photo Courtesy -- The White House.(NEW YORK) -- Sitting down for the second time with all the leaders from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the first meeting on U.S. soil, President Obama said on Friday that the United States has an “enormous stake” in the people and the future of Asia. 
 
“The region is home to some of our largest trading partners, and buys many of our exports, supporting millions of American jobs,” President Obama said at a luncheon at the Waldorf hotel in New York, “we need partnerships with Asian nations to meet the challenges of our growing economy, preventing proliferation and addressing climate change.”

President Obama has tried to make clear the US intends to play a leadership role in Asia.  The ten countries of ASEAN – all represented at the luncheon Friday are Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, Burma, Singapore, and Thailand.
 
The president announced he has accepted ASEAN’s invitation to join the East Asia Summit in Jakarta next year.
