Yeltsin to Meet Major

LONDON () -- President Boris Yeltsin will visit Britain late next month to meet Prime Minister John Major, British officials said on Wednesday.


He is expected to come Sept. 24-25, less than a month before Queen Elizabeth makes the first visit by a British monarch to Russia, a spokesman for Major's Downing Street office said.


Bosnia, which dominated talks when Major met Yeltsin in Moscow in February, is again likely to be a key topic for the two leaders, along with growing fears of alleged smuggling of weapons-grade nuclear materials from Russia.
