U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry waves as he steps aboard his aircraft in SydneyBy Lesley Wroughton HONOLULU (Reuters) – A constructive relationship between Washington and Beijing is necessary to maintaining regional stability despite China’s behavior in the South China Sea, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday at the end of an eight-day trip to Asia. In a speech in Hawaii, Kerry focused on the Obama administration’s so-called pivot to Asia instead of crises engulfing Iraq, Afghanistan, Gaza and Ukraine. During the speech, Kerry said President Barack Obama had asked him to redouble efforts in building relations with countries in Asia and the Pacific. Kerry referred to tensions in the South China Sea, which was the focus of a recent summit of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) he attended in Myanmar.
