Report: Suleiman in Washington on Sept. 25

Report: Suleiman in Washington on Sept. 25

President Michel Suleiman will visit the White House on September 25, An Nahar's Washington correspondent quoted informed U.S. officials as saying.

The sources said that U.S. President George Bush and Suleiman will discuss "bilateral relations and Lebanon's economic and military needs."

The Lebanese president's trip to Washington comes as part of a visit to New York to take part in the General Assembly of the United Nations.

An Nahar quoted informed sources as saying that Suleiman preferred to meet with Bush in New York and to visit Washington after the election of a new U.S. president. The White House and the State Department, however, insisted that the meeting between the two leaders in Washington would "give the visit and the talks a bigger importance," according to a U.S. source.

An Nahar said Friday that Foreign Minister Fawzi Salloukh and some of the president's advisors are expected to travel with Suleiman.

The president's travel to the U.S. comes ahead of an expected visit to Iran, according to An Nahar.

BEIRUT, Aug 29 (KUNA) -- Lebanese President Michel Suleiman is to meet with US President George W. Bush at the White House on September 25, a Lebanese daily said on Friday.

President Bush will meet with his Lebanese counterpart in Washington to discuss bilateral relations and Lebanon's economic and military needs, Annahar daily said, quoting informed US sources.

Suleiman's visit to the United States comes in the framework of his participation in the session of the General Assembly of the United Nations in New York, the daily added.

President Suleiman, according to Annahar, would have preferred to meet with President Bush in New York instead of Washington, yet the White House and State Department made it clear that the reception of Suleiman in Washington would give the visit and talks greater significance.

Expected to accompany the Lebanese president is Foreign Minister Fawzi Salloukh and some presidential advisers, but the final formation of the delegation have not yet been determined.

Suleiman's visit to Washington comes before his expected visit to Iran. (end) oh.hb KUNA 291041 Aug 08NNNN
