After the next week US President George W. Bush's address to the UN General Assembly, a group of "high-ranking officials" of the US Administration will head from Washington to Moscow for "further consultations on Iraq", the White House press-secretary Ari Fleischer disclosed on Friday in Washington.
The decision to send the American delegation to Moscow has been taken personally by George W. Bush, he said.
According to Fleischer, Bush informed Russian President Vladimir Putin about the delegation on the phone on Friday.
On Friday Bush discussed the Iraqi issue with Chinese Chairman Jiang Zemin and French President Jacques Chirac, Fleischer was quoted as saying.
