Iraqi Leaders To Take Part In Bush's Strategy Session on Iraq

President Bush is set to discuss the situation in Iraq with the country's new leaders today (Tuesday) via video conference.

The session is expected to include Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and his top cabinet ministers. They will talk with Mr. Bush and his advisors, who are meeting for a second day at Camp David on how to help Iraq deal with security, economic and energy problems.

On Monday, President Bush said the United States will stand by Iraq as its new defense minister assesses the situation. Mr. Bush declined to make predictions about U.S. troop withdrawals.
