U.S. first lady Michelle Obama gestures as she gives a speech at the Peking University in Beijing, March 22, 2014. U.S. first lady met her Chinese counterpart on Friday, a long-anticipated encounter during a week-long trip to promote education and cultural ties. Michelle Obama, who is visiting China with her mother and two daughters, is expected to forgo discussion of trade, human rights and the tangle of other issues that have weighed on U.S.-China relations. Instead, she plans to focus on building goodwill through soft diplomacy. REUTERS/Petar Kujundzic (CHINA - Tags: POLITICS EDUCATION) less
