The trip will take the Secretary to Bucharest, Romania; Ankara, Turkey; Brussels, Belgium; Tashkent, Uzbekistan; Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan; Astana, Kazakhstan; Moscow, Russia; Berlin, Germany; Paris, France; and London, England.

The trip will involve several multilateral meetings, beginning in Bucharest with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
