President Bush Meets Ugandan President

Yesterday, Tuesday October 30th, President Bush held a White House summit with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.  It is reported that the two leaders discussed the importance of the successful peace talks, though in a press conference after the meeting the peace process was not mentioned.

The U.S. is a major donor to Uganda, giving the country hundreds of millions dollars each year.  President Bush has asked for increased funding in 2008, underlining Uganda’s strategic importance to the U.S. as a buffer to Islamic Sudan and a possible source of oil.
