German Chancellor Angela Merkel is visiting Latvia today for talks amid the crisis in the Ukraine.

Merkel is set to meet Latvian Prime Minister Laimdota Straujuma and President Andris Berzins to discuss issues including the unrest in Ukraine and the consequences of Russia's recent food embargo.

Merkel will also discuss Latvia's presidency of the Council of the European Union and the new European Commission's main tasks intended to facilitate the EU's growth and further market development.

Later, Merkel will participate in a discussion about the economic cooperation between Latvia and Germany held at the Latvian National Library.

Merkel previously visited Latvia during the NATO summit in 2006 and during the Latvian-German Economic Forum in 2010.
