Bush elated with welcome

Team Rediff | March 02, 2006

United States President George W Bush looked cheerful as he was accorded a ceremonial reception at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Thursday morning.

Bush exchanged more than the usual two words of greeting with Finance Minister P Chidambaram and Commerce Minister Kamal Nath during the introductions to Dr Singh's ministers.

A visibly elated Bush later told reporters, "I have been to many capitals around the world. I have never seen a reception as well organised and as grand as the reception we just received."
