Bush Meeting with Iraq's Prime Minister is Postponed

NOVEMBER 29, 2006 - Posted at 4:07 p.m. CST

 

AMMAN, JORDAN - President Bush has arrived in Jordan, but he won't be meeting with Iraq's prime minister until tomorrow.

He was supposed to sit down with the Iraqi leader and with Jordan's King Abdullah right away.  But instead, Bush is meeting only with the king, for now.

The postponement of his meeting with Nouri al-Maliki came after public disclosure of U.S. doubts about al-Maliki's ability to control sectarian warfare.

But the White House says the delay isn't related to the leak of that memo.  And counselor Dan Bartlett says it's not a snub of the Iraqi leader.

Instead, Bartlett says the king and the prime minister met before Bush arrived, so there was no need for a three-way meeting.
