Tony Blair has arrived in America for talks with President Bush about the possible war with Iraq. The British leader is travelling to Camp David for his crucial summit with Bush against a backdrop of worldwide divisions over military action.
Blair will attempt to persuade Bush to forge the broadest possible international coalition by seeking a fresh United Nations mandate, according to reports.
The meeting comes after Blair and the leaders of seven other European nations broke with France and Germany and expressed support for the tough US stance on Iraq.
