G8 Bush And Hu Jintao To Discuss Nth Korea
U.S., CHINESE PRESIDENTS TO DISCUSS NORTH KOREA
While attending the G-8 Summit in France, President Bush will meet with Chinese President Hu Jintao on Sunday, June 1. Fleischer said the meeting between the two leaders would be "another important piece in making a determination about the next way, the next step, to proceed in dealings with North Korea."
"The Chinese involvement in resolving the North Korea attempt to nuclearize the (Korean) peninsula is a very important involvement," Fleischer said. "The president wants to talk to the new Chinese president about this. And China is committed to this process; that's important, and the president wants to talk to them about that. I think there will be a number of other issues that come up with China as well, including trade and some other matters."
