Secretary Rice: Travel to Europe and Iraq, March 29 - April 3, 2006
Secretary Rice is greeted by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool on arrival at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice traveled to Germany, France, United Kingdom and Iraq. During the trip, she consulted with key European allies on the range of common challenges, including Iran, that the United States is addressing with its transatlantic partners.
Secretary Rice’s trip to Berlin and Paris provided an opportunity to continue her dialogue with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Jacques Chirac and other top officials.
Her visit to the United Kingdom took her to Liverpool and Blackburn, where she accompanied Foreign Minister Jack Straw. The trip mirrors that which the Secretary and the Foreign Minister made to Alabama last October, underscoring the shared values and cultural links between the United States and the United Kingdom.
On April 2 Secretary Rice and Foreign Minister Jack Straw made a visit to to Baghdad at what is an important time for Iraq.
