WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice travels to Europe on Monday to sign a missile defense agreement in Prague and will make stops in Sofia and Tbilisi, the State Department said on Sunday.
State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Rice will meet with senior Czech, Bulgarian and Georgian officials on a wide range of bilateral and transatlantic issues during the four-day trip.
In Prague, Rice will sign an agreement for stationing a U.S. missile defense radar on Czech soil, McCormack said in a statement.
Russia opposes the missile defense shield system, arguing that it could someday be expanded to neutralize its nuclear deterrent.
