U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will meet Ichiro Ozawa, leader of the Democratic Party of Japan, on Tuesday evening at a Tokyo hotel, DPJ Diet affairs chief Kenji Yamaoka said Saturday.

The United States government requested the meeting, according to Yamaoka. The unusual talks reflect the looming possibility that the DPJ-led opposition camp may oust the Liberal Democratic Party-New Komeito ruling coalition from power in the general election slated later this year.
