Q Mr. President, any thoughts about this first meeting?

PRESIDENT PUTIN: -- first impression, it was a good first impression.

PRESIDENT BUSH: I rest my case. (Laughter.) We're going to have a very good meeting. And I've been looking forward to this for a long period of time; we find we have a lot in common. And I'm so honored the President came here -- I know it's inconvenient to travel such a long distance, Mr. President --

PRESIDENT PUTIN: We know about the very latest statements of President Bush in Warsaw, and that's a very good foundation for us to proceed.
