Carnegie’s Douglas Paal spoke to RT’s Worlds Apart about U.S. foreign policy challenges in the wake of President Obama’s first term promises. Although the president did not mention previous initiatives to “reset Russia” and “rebalance Asia” in his recent foreign policy speech at West Point, Paal reaffirmed the importance of the president’s focus on East Asia. “Rebalancing is still the policy,” said Paal, adding that overall it was an effective strategy to unite diplomacy, economics and trade, and security, “in an effort to make sure that America puts a proper investment where the world is growing the fastest.”
