President Clinton's Trip to Europe

President Clinton will travel to Europe from June 15 through June 22. He will address the International Labor Organization in Geneva on June 16, where he will meet with Swiss President Ruth Dreifuss. President Clinton is pleased to accept an invitation from President Chirac and Prime Minister Jospin to visit France from June 16 through 17. This visit will provide an opportunity for the leaders to address their common agenda for strengthened transatlantic partnership, closer bilateral ties and efforts to bring peace to Kosovo.

As previously announced, President Clinton will attend the Cologne G-8 Summit from June 18 through June 20, the 24th annual meeting of the heads of government of the world's leading industrialized democracies. The President will participate in the semi-annual U.S.-EU Summit with Germany and the European Commission on June 21 in Bonn. The President will also visit Slovenia, marking the first time a United States President has visited that country.

Further details about the itinerary will be made available as planning proceeds.
