New Dates for Secretary's Trip to Ukraine

Secretary Albright has rescheduled her trip to Ukraine for April 14. Following her visit in Kiev, she will go on to the Central Asian republics of Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan.

This will be Secretary Albright's second trip to Ukraine as Secretary of State. Her previous visit was in March 1998. While in Kiev, the Secretary will consult with Ukrainian government officials on a broad range of bilateral and multilateral issues, including Ukraine's efforts to accelerate market reforms and speed its integration into the Euro-Atlantic community. She will underscore the strong U.S. support for the ambitious reform agenda being undertaken by President Kuchma and Prime Minister Yushchenko.
