WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama has overseas travel plans Wednesday.

After a morning meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and the usual daily briefings, Obama leaves the White House in the evening for Andrews Air Force Base. He'll fly from there to Prague, Czech Republic, to sign a new arms reduction agreement with Russia.

It replaces the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or START, agreement.
