The State Department says Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will travel to Copenhagen this week to attend a conference aimed at fashioning a global deal to curb emissions that cause global warming.

The department has not announced Clinton's trip, but an official speaking on condition of anonymity said she would hold meetings at the conference on Thursday and then join President Barack Obama when he arrives.

In an opinion article published in the International Herald-Tribune newspaper on Tuesday, Clinton called for what she termed a "broad operational accord on climate change that will set us on a new course."
