Riga - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton touched down in Latvia on Thursday, the 100th country she has visited since becoming the US top diplomat less than four years ago.

The State Department said Clinton has embarked on 70 foreign trips and spent 337 days on the road and logged over 73 days on an aircraft.

Clinton has visited more countries than any of her 66 predecessors, according to officials.

Beginning with Japan in 2009, Clinton has globetrotted her way through countries as diverse as Angola, Papua New Guinea and Finland.

The second leg of a four-nation European visit, Clinton landed in the Latvian capital for meetings with the Nato ally's president, prime minister and foreign minister.

Her next stop is Russia.
