President Barack Obama has reassured Japan that a mutual defense treaty covers the islands at the heart of a territorial dispute with China, but says he has drawn no "red lines" that would result in a U.S. military attack on Chinese forces. VOA White House correspondent Luis Ramirez is traveling with the president and has this report from Tokyo.
