George W. Bush to visit Israel next month

U.S. President George W. Bush will visit Israel next month. He will focus on promoting Israeli-Palestinian peace talks in the framework of last week's Mideast summit in the U.S., as well as discussions about Iran's nuclear program.

Officials at the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv refused to confirm or deny the report. This would be Bush's first visit to Israel since he took office.
