Bush, Merkel discuss number of international issues

President George W. Bush and German Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed Iran and the Middle East, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Monday. He said they also discussed Ukraine, Belarus and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's trip to Iran with British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw.

McClellan gave no details of the telephone conversation, which Bush made from Air Force One on the way from his Texas ranch to a baseball game in this Ohio Valley city settled in part by German immigrants. The call took place before the arrival in Washington of German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who will meet with Rice and other officials to discuss international developments and strengthening trans-Atlantic relations, reports the AP.
