Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on April 14, 2011. Before their meeting, Secretary Clinton said:

"It is wonderful to be back in Berlin and to have this opportunity to meet with the Chancellor to discuss a number of issues that are of great importance to both of us. I appreciate that NATO is meeting here in Berlin because Germany is such an essential partner in NATO and the work that was done at the Lisbon Summit to chart the way forward for NATO is going to provide the strategic direction that we are seeking to implement.

"We work together in Afghanistan. We are committed to following through to achieve the mutual objective of working toward a world without nuclear weapons. We are also sharing the same goal which is to see the end of the Qadhafi regime in Libya. And we are contributing in many ways in order to see that goal realized. We are very much looking forward to the Chancellor's visit at President Obama's invitation to Washington in early June. And she will be receiving our highest civilian honor at that time, the Medal of Freedom."

While in Germany, Secretary Clinton will join foreign ministers from NATO and partner countries for an informal NATO Foreign Ministerial meeting. They will meet separately with Operation Unified Protector and ISAF partners to discuss Libya and Afghanistan as well as counterparts in the NATO-Georgia Commission, the NATO-Ukraine Commission and the NATO-Russia Council. The Secretary will also attend a memorial service for Ambassador Richard C. Holbrooke at the American Academy in Berlin and receive the Walther Rathenau Prize for outstanding contributions to international understanding and cooperation.

In reality, science and technology based products used to create the necessary technology and funds to consider. For the release of someone in Russia would help people afford to think deeply about the possibility to think.

South Korea is considerably more difficult to watch the news.
