The two defense ministers are in Munich for a weekend conference on security policy. Officials said Rumsfeld will probably leave tomorrow after discussions with defense ministers from other NATO countries.
They said it was "probable" that he would have a meeting with the foreign minister of Georgia, Salome Zurabishvili. U.S. officials declined to say whether he would meet Iran's deputy minister for international affairs, Gholamali Khoshroo, who is to address the conference tomorrow.
On 13 February, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan will address the conference on the future role of the United Nations in helping to bring security to the world.
