Commemorative book on Bush-Putin summit

SLOVAKIA's Foreign Ministry has put out a book on the Bush-Putin summit held at Bratislava Castle a year ago.

The book was published to mark the first anniversary of the summit, the TASR news agency wrote.

Foreign Minister Eduard Kukan presented the publication to diplomats and other invited guests on February 24 at the ministry.

The book tells the story of the summit, and outlines the official visits of both US President George W. Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin to Slovakia from February 23 to 25, 2005.

Included are comments made by Bush and Putin at the official press conference, and President Bush's speech to Slovak citizens on Hviezdoslavovo Square in Bratislava.

"In doing this, we wanted to recall and document everything that happened during the three days when Bratislava became the capital of the world," Kukan said.
