New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully is traveling to the United States on Tuesday to meet with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other US President Barack Obama Administration officials.

"The signing of the Wellington Declaration last November reaffirmed the strength of the New Zealand-US relationship," McCully said in a statement on Tuesday.

He will meet with US Secretary of State Clinton as part of the on-going dialogue with the United States on current issues, including Afghanistan, cooperation in the Pacific and developments in the Middle East.

McCully will meet with other U.S. officials and members of the Congress, including Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, Senator John McCain, Deputy Secretary of State Thomas Nides, Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell and National Security Council East Asia Pacific Senior Director Danny Russel.

He will deliver an address to the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) on the New Zealand-U.S. relationship in the Pacific.
