WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is
planning to travel to Russia next week, a visit that follows recent
talks between President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart
Vladimir Putin in Mexico.

The State Department said Wednesday that Clinton will attend a
meeting of Asia-Pacific foreign ministers in St. Petersburg on June
28. Clinton also will hold private talks with Russian Foreign
Minister Sergey Lavrov that will likely focus on the crisis in
Syria and efforts to get Iran to comply with international demands
on its nuclear program.

Clinton's visit was planned before Monday's Obama-Putin meeting
but she and Lavrov were expected to build on that discussion, which
ended without apparent agreement on how to end continuing violence
in Syria.

Clinton will visit Finland and Latvia before Russia.
