US Vice President Joe Biden on Monday begins a week-long visit to India and Singapore where officials say he will tackle tensions over the disputed South China Sea "head on."

 

The trip allows the White House to reassert its commitment to a strategic pivot to Asia, with Biden to discuss growing economic cooperation with the region as well as geo-political hot topics such as Afghanistan.

 

Notably it provides President Barack Obama's number two a chance to confer with regional leaders on how to manage overlapping maritime claims in the South China Sea - a flashpoint for the past decade.
