Clinton will be in Berlin from Wednesday through Friday for the talks among the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's 28 members, who will also discuss Afghanistan and hold separate meetings with Georgia, Russia and Ukraine.

She will travel to Seoul on Saturday and Sunday amid a diplomatic flurry that seems designed to try to resume talks on ending the Democratice People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) nuclear programs.

A Republic of Korea (ROK) nuclear envoy is in Washington this week to meet top officials, including Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg and Stephen Bosworth, the US special representative for DPRK policy.

Clinton ends her trip in Tokyo on Sunday in a gesture of support to Japan following its March 11 earthquake and tsunami, which killed thousands, crippled a nuclear power plant and rattled the world's third-largest economy.

While in Japan, she will meet Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan and Foreign Minister Takeaki Matsumoto.
