Biden: Asia's growth a chance to bend history

SEOUL, South Korea — Vice President Joe Biden says changes in Asia are remaking the world. He says we're at a rare inflection point where we have a chance to bend history.

Biden is delivering a speech at a South Korea university about America's Asia policy. He says the nature of Asia-Pacific affairs in the 21st century is still being written.

Biden is touting Asia's potential for growth. He says growth resides peace. But he also says with growth also comes new tensions and threats.

He's calling for a single set of rules for open economic exchange and better diplomatic and security relations so that all people can benefit.

Biden's speech comes near the end of a three-country Asia tour aimed at showing the U.S. is still committed to expanding its Asian footprint.
