QUESTION: Madame Secretary, what are you doing to help with the financial crisis

SECRETARY RICE: The President and Secretary Paulson are obviously leading this very important effort, but there’s an international aspect, and I am doing what I can to help out.

And the Forum for the Future is a very important event that will take place. Deputy Secretary Negroponte is going to represent us at the Forum. And I have just spoken with my colleague from the UAE and I am looking forward to hearing back from Secretary Negroponte and I am disappointed that I cannot go. It is always a great event, the Forum for the Future, because it really looks to the non-governmental sector in particular to push the efforts at reform throughout the Middle East.

Thank you.

MR. MCCORMACK: Thanks, guys.

QUESTION: How would you estimate U.S.-Armenian relations developing?

SECRETARY RICE: Well, we are going to talk about that today. And the United States and Armenia, of course, have good relations. We are working on a number of issues. We were very pleased to see that the visit of President Gul to Armenia went very well, and look forward to continuing to work on issues of common interest.

Thank you.

QUESTION: Will you talk about Nagorno-Karabakh?

SECRETARY RICE: Certainly, we will. Thank you.
