A nuclear standoff with Iran and the coming constitutional vote in Iraq are among topics for US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's visits with allies in Europe and for a surprise trip to Moscow. Lebanese politics also are on the agenda Friday when Rice meets in Paris with President Jacques Chirac and French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy. The two nations cooperated last year on a resolutions in the United Nations demanding that Syria bring home its troops and intelligence agents from the territory of its smaller neighbor. Rice will see Russia's president, Vladimir Putin, and his foreign minister on Saturday in Moscow for talks on several Middle East issues, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Thursday.
