Putin Gives Bush Warm Welcome

Bush took a 45-minute break in Moscow where his plane needed to refuel before going on to the Vietnamese capital Hanoi to join the APEC summit.

Given a warm welcome, the Bush couple had breakfast with Putin and his wife.

Kremlin sources characterized the breakfast meeting as a preliminary step towards official talks later in Vietnam.

Russian diplomats view this meeting as a consequence of the need for dialogue between the United States and Russia as both countries are approaching general elections.
