Clinton to visit Egypt, Tunisia next week
WASHINGTON, March 10
WASHINGTON, March 10 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will travel to Egypt and Tunisia next week, becoming the most senior American official to visit the region after popular revolts toppled U.S.-allied governments in both countries.
"I intend to convey strong support of the Obama administration and the American people, that we wish to be a partner in the important work that lies ahead," Clinton told a congressional panel on Thursday.
She said she would meet Libyan opposition figures during the trip and in the United States.
