Policy Announcements, Monday 30 July


  • US President George W Bush and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown have pledged to forge a strategic relationship based on values shared between both nations. They met at Camp David, near Washington, their first meeting since Mr Brown succeeded Tony Blair as UK PM. Talks focused on issues including Iraq, Afghanistan, Darfur and world trade. Mr Brown denounced terrorism as a crime, not a cause, while Mr Bush said the UK fully understood the importance of striving for success in Iraq.
