Primakov's Swiss Visit

MOSCOW -- Former Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov plans to visit Switzerland in early June, sources in his entourage said Monday.

"He will read lectures on Russia's role in the world and explain his views on international events, in particular the situation around Yugoslavia," one source said.

Primakov's stay in Switzerland will be no longer than a week and may include medical treatment, the sources said. He had acute back pains not long before his dismissal.
