Hillary Clinton to visit Europe next week

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will make a short trip to Europe next week, making her sixth visit to Germany and first to Bulgaria as America's top diplomat.

The State Department said on Friday that Clinton will go to Munich on February 3 to participate in the annual Munich Security Conference and meet with various other foreign ministers and senior officials who are attending.

She will then travel to Sofia the next day for discussions with Bulgarian leaders on their role in Afghanistan and lessons their democratic transition could provide to the Arab world. Clinton will return to Washington on February 5.
