Secretary of State Clinton will dive into diplomacy for the first time tomorrow as British Foreign Secretary David Miliband and German Foreign Minister Steinmeier come to town for meetings.
Miliband is first on her schedule in the morning (at 10:30 a.m. ET) and then she will have lunch with Steinmeier (at 12:30 p.m. ET).
State Department officials expect Iran to be a heavy focus of the discussions.
Clinton's meetings with Miliband and Steinmeier come the day before representatives of the so-called "P5 plus one" (U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Russia and China) meet in Berlin on Wednesday. The U.S. will be represented there by William Burns, the third-ranking official at State.
The group is meeting for the first time since Obama was elected to discuss how to move forward in their efforts to stop Iran's nuclear enrichment. Until now, the carrots-and-sticks approach of economic and political incentives -- combined with UN sanctions -- has not worked.
Also on the agenda with Miliband and Steinmeier: Afghanistan. A day after Obama told NBC that there will be no "Jeffersonian democracy" there, Clinton will discuss how the U.S. and Europe can work together to stabilize the country.
