OTTAWA -- U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will visit 
Ottawa on Monday and Tuesday to discuss several matters, including 
the situation in the Middle East and the dispute about Pacific 
salmon. As well as meeting Foreign Affairs Minister Lloyd Axworthy, 
Mrs. Albright is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Jean Chretien and 
other cabinet ministers. Mr. Axworthy said the two countries will 
also discuss environmental co-operation, the United Nations, Nigeria, 
Haiti and a summit to be held next month in Chile of North and South 
American countries. A spokesman for Mrs. Albright said he expects 
here to ask Canadian and other NATO officials to closely examine the 
deal struck last week between Iraqi officials and UN 
Secretary-General Kofi Annan.-- CP
