The President's Radio Address

June 26, 2004

    Good morning. This week I'm traveling to the U.S.-EU Summit in 
Ireland, homeland to so many Irish Americans and one of the fastest 
growing and modern economies in the European Union. I will also be 
attending the NATO Summit in Turkey, a proud nation that successfully 
blends a European identity with secular democracy and Islamic 
    I will discuss with our European Allies our common struggle to 
defeat the forces of global terror, our common interest in the spread of 
prosperity, and our common efforts to help the people of Iraq secure for 
themselves a future of freedom.
    Next Wednesday, full sovereignty in Iraq will be in the hands of the 
free Iraqi people. As that day approaches, the enemies of freedom in 
Iraq are growing ever more desperate. Last Tuesday, a young man from 
South Korea, Kim Sun-il, was viciously murdered by terrorists. That 
coldblooded act demonstrated once again the evil nature of the enemy. 
Their barbaric violence is designed to destabilize Iraq's new 
government, intimidate the Iraqi people, and shake the will of our 
coalition. Yet, our will is firm. South Korean President Roh has 
reaffirmed his determination to send more troops to help rebuild Iraq. 
Iraq's leaders, in a daily display of courage, refuse to be deterred 
from their dream of democracy, stability, and prosperity for the Iraqi 
    The international community has a responsibility to promote the rise 
of a free Iraq, and it is meeting that responsibility. Today the nations 
of the European Union pledged their support for the new government of 
Iraq. Next week, at the NATO Summit, we will discuss Iraqi Prime 
Minister Alawi's request for NATO help in training Iraq's security 
forces. NATO has the capability to help the Iraqi people defeat the 
terrorist threat facing their country. As Iraq moves toward the transfer 
of sovereignty next week, NATO, the European Union, and the United 
States are united in our determination to help the people of that 
    The world's free nations also have a responsibility to advance the 
blessings of liberty that have lifted our own nations. Earlier this 
month, the nations of the G-8 pledged their energies and resources to 
working in partnership with the peoples of the broader Middle East to 
advance human dignity, freedom, democracy, the rule of law, and economic 
opportunity. The United States, the European Union, and NATO are looking 
beyond the borders of Europe to support the momentum of freedom in the 
broader Middle East.
    At these summits, we will seek to strengthen the security of our 
homelands from the threat of terror. We have taken steps to freeze and 
block terrorists' finances, make transportation safer, and improve 
information sharing. We will discuss ways to further improve 
transportation safety and border security. Travel between our nations is 
the lifeblood of our friendship, our economies, and our alliances, and 
that travel must be safe.
    One important way to make the world safer is to make the world 
better. The United States and Europe share a fundamental interest in the 
health of the global economy. Our trade and investment relationship is 
the largest in the world. It creates millions of jobs on both sides of 
the Atlantic. Open trade has the power to lift nations out of poverty, 
so we will reaffirm our commitment to free and fair trade and the 
removal of obstacles to global economic growth.
    We believe that freedom has the power to defeat poverty and 
hopelessness and ignorance. We believe the advance of freedom makes the 
world safer for all nations. And we believe that when free nations work 
together, freedom will always prevail.
    Thank you for listening.

The President's News Conference With European Union Leaders in Shannon, 

June 26, 2004

    Prime Minister Ahern. Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to begin this 
press conference of the E.U.-U.S. Summit here in Dromoland by welcoming 
President Bush to Ireland for this important summit and thank him for 
coming to us and for the participation with President Romano Prodi and 
under the Irish Presidency.
    Our meeting has not only been extremely productive, I think it's, 
for us, also been historic, because it's the first summit between the 
enlarged E.U. of 25 and the United States. And it's also the first since 
we succeeded in concluding the negotiations in the European constitution 
last weekend.
    From the outset, the transatlantic relationship has been a core 
focus of our Presidency, and it is my steadfast belief that a close 
transatlantic partnership is essential for prosperity and for growth on 
both sides of the Atlantic as well as for the broader international 
community. And I'm pleased that this summit has reaffirmed the strength, 
the depth, and the significance of our relationship in the spirit of 
    The economic relationship between the European Union, United States 
has been a central focus of our discussions today. It's a relationship 
that generates 12 million jobs on both sides of the Atlantic. We agreed 
at joint declaration on strengthening our economic partnership, which 
includes a commitment to work for successful outcome of the World Trade 
Organization negotiations. And we also launched a comprehensive review 
to maximize investment and reduce barriers to trade across the Atlantic. 
And the review will be concluded in time for the next summit this time 
next year.
    We also focused on common challenges facing the European Union and 
the United States, including the pressing need to promote peace in the 
Middle East, on how we can best work together to support the people of 
Iraq as they start the process of building a sovereign, secure, and 
democratic country. We discussed and have issued joint declarations on 
Iraq as well as on counterterrorism, on nonproliferation, the fight 
against HIV and AIDS, Sudan, and partnership with the Mediterranean and 
the Middle East.
    So the European Union and United States share, ladies and gentlemen, 
a common set of values based on the unshakeable commitment to democracy, 
to human rights, and the rule of law. And it's these shared values which 
make us enduring partners, a partnership that has been fundamental to 
the stability and prosperity of both Europe and America over the last 50 
    And this summit has added significantly to our close relationship, 
and I thank the President, and I thank President Prodi for the good work 
that we've done today.
    Mr. President.
    President Bush. Thank you, Mr. Prime Minister. Thanks for your 
hospitality. Thanks for doing such a great job at the E.U. President
