By Matt Spetalnick and Nathan Layne WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama accused China on Tuesday of "flexing its muscles" to advance its maritime claims against Asian neighbors and assured Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of the U.S. commitment to defend Japanese territory, including tiny islands in dispute with Beijing.

"I want to reiterate that our treaty commitment to Japan’s security is absolute," Obama said with Abe standing at his side.
