Bush on Farewell Visit to Europe
    2008-06-11 16:15:01     CRIENGLISH.com

US President George Bush touched down in Berlin for a social dinner with German Chancellor Angel Merkel on Tuesday after a day of meetings with EU leaders in Slovenia.

Earlier, Bush had a long list of trans-Atlantic issues on his plate for his last summit with the heads of the EU, held in scenic countryside in Slovenia.

One issue dominating the talks was Iran.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the summit, Bush has urged Iran to fully disclose any nuclear weapons work and allow the International Atomic Energy Agency to verify that work.

"We have got to continue to work together to make it clear, abundantly clear to them that it's their choice to make: they can either face isolation or they can have better relations with all of us if they verifiably suspend their enrichment programme."

The summit also covered climate change. What to do about global warming has been a sticking point of US-European relations.

Bush said he believed he would be able to get agreement on global climate change during his presidency which ends on 20 January 2009.

During his weeklong stay in Europe, he will also go to Italy, France, London and Belfast.
