Fujimori Visits U.S.

WASHINGTON -- Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori meets Monday with U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright after pledging to open negotiations for a peaceful end to the hostage crisis in Lima.

Fujimori made the pledge of negotiations Saturday at a meeting in Toronto with Japanese Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto.

Fujimori said he was willing to open a "preliminary dialogue" with the rebels holding 72 hostages at the Japanese ambassador's residence.
