Yeltsin to Go to China

President Boris Yeltsin is tentatively planning to visit China this October, Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov said Tuesday.

Yeltsin will discuss "a wide range of questions pertaining to interaction and cooperation between our states" with Chinese leaders, Itar-Tass quoted Ivanov as saying after meeting the president.

Yeltsin's most recent trip abroad was to Cologne, Germany, for the Group of Eight summit of top industrial nations plus Russia on June 20. He also traveled to Jordan in February for King Hussein's funeral.
