Swedish Visit to Russia

n STOCKHOLM () -- Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt will visit St. Petersburg on Thursday to meet Foreign Minister Andrei Kozyrev, Bildt's office said Wednesday. Bildt and Kozyrev will discuss relations between Russia and the Baltic states and the situation in Bosnia. Bildt has frequently called for a speedy and complete withdrawal of the remaining ex-Soviet troops in the Baltic states. Russia pulled its last soldiers out of Lithuania last August and has agreed with Latvia to withdraw its troops from the country by August 31. Estonia is the only Baltic state which has not yet concluded a formal pullout deal with Russia.
