Clinton Cancels Overseas Trip
By Glenn Kessler
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has canceled plans to travel to Italy and Greece this week because she is still recovering from surgery on her broken elbow.
Clinton fell at the State Department last Wednesday and had surgery on Friday.
She had planned to travel to Trieste, Italy, for meetings with her Group of Eight counterparts on Iran, the Middle East peace process and the war in Afghanistan. She also planned to attend a gathering of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe on Corfu, where talks were expected to center on the Russia-Georgia dispute.
The cancellation was announced by Deputy Secretary of States James B. Steinberg. He said that he would represent the United States at the Greek forum while Undersecretary of State William Burns will attend the meetings in Italy.
