BUDAPEST, Hungary   Secretary of State Colin Powell discussed 
U.S. plans for a national missile defense with Russian Foreign Minister 
Igor Ivanov on Wednesday but didn't outline any new incentives to 
make the plan more palatable to Moscow.

....

Powell and Ivanov met for about half an hour on the sidelines of the 
final day of a two-day NATO meeting.

Ivanov and Powell also talked about the Middle East, Afghanistan, and 
efforts by the United States and Britain to win Russian support for a 
series of sanctions on Iraq.

The current phase of the U.N. humanitarian "oil-for-food" program 
expires on June 3. So far, Russia has opposed proposed revisions in 
the sanctions program sought by the United States and Britain.

No agreement was reached in Budapest, but Boucher said Powell was 
hopeful that an agreement could be reached by negotiators at the 
United Nations in New York before the deadline.
