Obama landed in Thailand today to begin a schedule is packed with cultural sightseeing, a royal audience with Thailand’s king and a private meeting with the country’s prime minister, a joint press conference and an official dinner. He’ll also become the first president to visit Myanmar, also known as Burma.

But while in Asia, Obama will be dividing his attention and he closely monitors the escalating conflict between Israel and the Palestinians in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

Obama’s in regular contact with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as well as with Egyptian and Turkish leaders who might have influence on the Hamas leadership.
