BRATISLAVA (AFP) Feb 24, 2005
UN President George W. Bush said he was hopeful a diplomatic solution can be reached over Iran's nuclear program as the United States and Europe agree Tehran should not get atomic weapons.
Speaking at a meeting with Slovakian Prime Minister Mikulas Dzurinda Bush said the United States and Europe were "on the same page on this issue."
"Hopefully we'll be able to find a diplomatic solution," he said.
The leaders of Britain, France and Germany, who are negotiating to get Iran to abandon uranium enrichment, have "all said loud and clear that the Iranians should not have any nuclear weapons," said the US leader, who is on the last day of a visit to Europe.All rights reserved. © 2005 Agence France-Presse.
