The World

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Moscow today on a two day visit to attend a meeting on the Middle East between the U.S., the EU, the UN, and Russia. Washington has demanded that Israel takes steps to demonstrate its commitment to the bilateral relationship and to the peace process. The visit is also an opportunity for bilateral discussions with Russia on a treaty to reduce nuclear stockpiles.
