President Obama's wife, Michelle, is set to speak to delegates at [as] the Democratic party opens its convention Tuesday. Michelle Obama is to make the case for re-electing her husband.

American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Beijing on her third stop in the Asia Pacific area. The visit is aimed partly at urging China and its neighbors to agree on a method for settling territorial disputes in the South China Sea. China claims nearly all of the area.

Other nations with claims to the sea include Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Brunei. Secretary Clinton met Tuesday with China's Foreign Minister Yan Jiechi. She said the United States is committed to building a co-operative partnership with China.
