Kerry arrives in Manila to strengthen U.S. ties with old ally
By Lesley Wroughton MANILA (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is in the Philippines on Tuesday, seeking to modernize economic and political ties with one of America's oldest allies in South East Asia. Kerry's two-day visit takes him to the capital, Manila, for talks with government officials and the business community. As he did on his previous stop in Vietnam, Kerry will discuss maritime security with authorities in the Philippines, which also has territorial claims in the South China Sea. "They will certainly discuss the specific issues pertaining to the South China Sea," a senior State Department official said.
