Bush Arrives in Europe for World War Two Commemorations

  • VOA News

President Bush arrived in Latvia Friday for the start of a four-nation trip marking the 60th anniversary of the end of World War Two in Europe. Mr. Bush will meet with the leaders of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania in the Latvian capital of Riga on Saturday. The National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley said Mr. Bush will underscore democratic values during the meeting, including the importance of minority rights. All three Baltic states have substantial Russian populations. Mr. Bush will visit the Netherlands Sunday, before traveling to Moscow for Monday's events marking the Allied defeat of Nazi Germany. The leaders of Lithuania and Estonia have refused to attend. All three Baltic nations want Russia to denounce the Soviet Union's nearly five-decade occupation of their countries after World War Two. Mr. Bush told Lithuanian television he will tell Russia that the end of the war did not mean freedom for the Baltic states.
