Bush Keeps Busy Schedule on Sidelines of UN

  • VOA News

U.S. President George Bush is keeping busy on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York.

In a Tuesday morning meeting with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, Mr. Bush expressed his condolences for the victims of a terrorist attack in Islamabad on Saturday.

He also noted that Mr. Zardari spoke strongly during the meeting about Pakistan's sovereign right to protect itself. The issue is of particular concern, following Pakistan's complaints about a series of suspected U.S. missile strikes against militant targets inside the country.

Mr. Zardari, the husband of assassinated former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, said the country will work hard to solve its own problems -- in accordance with his wife's legacy.

President Bush also attended a meeting on food security. He said the United States has committed about five-billion dollars over the next two years to fight global hunger.

He is also meeting with freedom activists from around the world.
