U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama will not travel to California with her husband for the upcoming US-China summit, smashing any hope of interaction between the two popular first ladies.

US President Barack Obama will meet with China's President Xi Jinping from 7 to 8 June 2013 at Sunnylands. The meeting will be the first time that the two leaders have met since Xi Jinping became President of the People's Republic of China.

Michelle Obama plans to remain in Washington with their daughters, who finish the school year this week, her office confirmed on Tuesday.

U.S. media have reported that on Thursday evening, as Mr. Obama flies towards California, Mrs. Obama will attend a fund-raiser in Washington for Terry McAuliffe, the former Democratic Party chairman and Clinton confidant who is running for the position of governor of Virginia. Her office would not provide further information about her weekend plans.
