BOTH Presidents George W Bush and Vladimir Putin described their summit talks in Bratislava February 24 as "instructive" and "constructive".
The two leaders agreed that neither North Korea nor Iran should have nuclear weapons. They both agreed to cooperate on identifying terrorism and organized crime, as well as strengthening the overall American-Russian relationship.
They also agreed to work together to help achieve peace in the Middle East.
Bush agreed to help accelerate Russia's membership into the World Trade Organization, while Putin stated that his country is ready for "reasonable compromise".By Beata Balogová and Julie Garrison Frederick, Spectator staff
