Foreign Policy Meeting

MOSCOW () -- Russian President Boris Yeltsin has called Foreign Minister Andrei Kozyrev and other top Foreign Ministry officials to a meeting Tuesday, Itar-Tass reported Monday.

The news agency, quoting ministry sources, said the agenda for the meeting, which would involve all deputy foreign ministers, was not yet known.

The agency said issues likely to come up include the need to formulate a coordinated Russian approach to NATO in the light of the Western military alliance's plan to expand to include some east European countries.
