US Embassy: All welcome for Bush speech

THE US EMBASSY welcomes all citizens interested in coming to Hviezdoslavovo square in Bratislava to listen to US President Bush's open air address to the Slovak people on February 24.

"We call on everybody to come and also enjoy the programme before Bush's speech," Barbara Zigli, of the US Embassy, told the TASR news service.

According to Zigli, President Bush wants to meet as many people as possible. "An approximately two-hour programme will help people waiting for the speech to while away the time," Bratislava Mayor's spokesperson Milan Vajda told TASR.

The programme will last from 9 am till 11:30 am. The Bratislava Culture and Information Centre (BKIS) and the US Embassy together designed the programme.
