Clinton's First Trip
Hilary Clinton's first trip as Secretary of State was to Asia, as the Voice of America News reported Sunday.

In Japan, Clinton will sign an agreement to ease tension over American troop presence by removing over 8,000 American troops, said VOA.

The BBC reports that Clinton said she wishes to broaden and deepen American ties with Asia.
Clinton called America both a trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific power.
