President Bush Arrives in Denmark Ahead of G-8 Summit

  • VOA News

President Bush has arrived in Denmark for a visit with government officials, before heading to Scotland to attend the Group of Eight summit.

Mr. Bush is scheduled to meet with Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen early Wednesday.

Danish police have stepped-up security around Copenhagen, where scores of protests are planned over the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

Dozens of protesters marched in the pouring rain Tuesday shouting anti-American slogans. Denmark has about 500 troops in Iraq. The president next heads to Gleneagles, Scotland, for a summit of the world's seven leading industrial countries plus Russia.

The G-8 meeting is expected to focus on the global environment and fighting poverty in Africa. British Prime Minister Tony Blair is expected to press for a significant increase in aid to Africa.

President Bush last week announced new funding for Africa. But he says he believes wealthy nations must help spur development in Africa, not simply donate money.
