U.S. Secretary of State of Condoleezza Rice has confirmed she will fly to Prague in early July to sign two U.S.- Czech treaties on the installation of a radar base on the Czech soil, the Czech daily Pravo said Tuesday.

"The date of the treaties' signature will be determined later this week," Pravo quoted Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg as saying.

According to the paper, Rice confirmed her plan to Schwarzenberg at the Bilderberg conference in Chantilly, Virginia, last week.

Bilderberg Club, also called the "Group of the Powerful," is an informal invitation-only organization of politicians, representatives of the military and industrial complex, bankers and businessmen. Schwarzenberg was the only Czech participant in this year's forum.

The United States has planned to build a radar base at the Brdy military district, some 90 kilometers southwest of the Czech capital Prague, along with an interceptor missile base in Poland.

Russia is strongly opposed to the deployment of the system, saying the plan poses a threat to its strategic interests. Some 70percent of Czech citizens also oppose the project.

Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek's center-right government has completed talks with the United States on the main radar treaty and is reportedly close to completing negotiations on the complementary SOFA treaty that deals with U.S. soldiers' status on the Czech territory.

After the treaties are signed, they will be submitted to parliament for ratification.
