THE White House confirmed today that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is to visit Northern Ireland, in what could be her last foreign engagement.



Mrs Clinton will travel to Belfast on December 7 to meet officials as well as discuss the peace process and investment opportunities.

The visit is part of a four-day trip that will also take in Dublin, the Czech Republic and Belgium.

Mrs Clinton, who visited Northern Ireland three times with her husband, former US president Bill Clinton, during the 1990s, plans to discuss the trilateral US-Ireland Research and Development Partnership and economic opportunities for Northern Ireland.

Later Mrs Clinton will take part in an event hosted by The Ireland Funds - a global fundraising network supporting programmes of peace and reconciliation, arts and culture, education, and community development in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Her journey to Belfast will follow a host of engagements south of the border.
