President Obama appears to be enjoying his trip to Asia, pausing for a moment to recognize the heavy applause he received during a meeting with students in Myanmar.

During a press conference with Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Obama was asked by reporters about approving the Keystone pipeline and his looming executive action on immigration reform.

Obama explained that immigration reform was “way overdue” and that the Keystone pipeline should be handled by the State Department and the courts.

When Obama finished his answer, Suu Kyi smiled and said, “I am sorry the president can’t get away from all those issues.”
