Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will visit Russia on October 13-14. Talks will likely focus on U.S. efforts to deal with Iran's nuclear program and a new U.S.-Russian strategic arms reduction plan.

Assistant Secretary of Defense Alexander Vershbow will be in Georgia on October 19-20 to follow up on security cooperation issues in the framework of the U.S.-Georgia Charter on Strategic Partnership.

Armenia's Prime Minister Tigran Sarkisian may visit California next month to attend the Global Armenian High-Tech Business Conference to be held in San Jose on November 5-8. The trip, if it takes place, is not due to involve a stop in Washington. Last month, Armenia's Economics Ministry reported that the prime minister's trip to the United States was in the works.
