MOSCOW () -- Foreign Minister Yevgeny Primakov will travel to Mexico, Cuba and Venezuela on an official visit May 19 to 25, an official said Sunday.

Primakov plans to meet the leaders and other top officials of the three states for talks on the international situation and bilateral relations, Foreign Ministry spokesman Grigory Karasin told Itar-Tass.

His visit reflects Russia's interest in "extending bilateral relations ... above all in the area of mutually beneficial trade," Karasin was quoted as saying.
