Aliyev to Visit Yeltsin

MOSCOW () -- Azerbaijani President Heidar Aliyev will visit Moscow this week for talks with his Russian counterpart, Boris Yeltsin, and other officials, an aide to Yeltsin said Monday.

Aliev is expected to arrive Wednesday and stay through Saturday. Yeltsin plans to meet with him in the Kremlin on Thursday, said presidential spokesman Sergei Yastrzhembsky.

Russian news agencies said Aliyev and officials from Russia's oil giant LUKOIL might discuss plans for Russian participation in the development of a Caspian Sea oil field during the Azerbaijani leader's visit.
