How is it going so far? President Bush. Pretty darn good. Winston Churchill Q. How was lunch? Is it true that Churchill once came to this cabin? President Bush. That's exactly right. Meeting With Prime Minister Blair Q. How goes the get-acquainted session? President Bush. Good, John [John Roberts, CBS News], thank you. Ambassador Johndroe was telling us where to go. Winston Churchill Q. Sir, can you tell us the historical significance of where you're standing? President Bush. This is where Prime Minister Winston Churchill, the first visitor to Camp David, stayed. It's a huge honor for Laura and me to welcome the current Prime Minister and his wife. And we're about to have a press availability to answer all these difficult questions that you're throwing at us, John. I promised the Prime Minister that you in particular would behave well during the press conference--and Fournier [Ron Fournier, Associated Press]. All right, we're actually now going to go for a walk of a couple miles. Q. Mr. Prime Minister, where's your coat? Prime Minister Blair. It's around somewhere, but actually it's a lot warmer than Canada. President Bush. You shouldn't have noticed that. Note: The exchange began at 3:23 p.m. on the porch of Holly Lodge. In his remarks, the President referred to Prime Minister Blair's wife, Cherie, and Assistant Press Secretary Gordon Johndroe.

Welcome. It's my honor to welcome the Prime Minister, from our strongest friend and closest ally, to Camp David. We've had a couple of formal visits. More importantly, we had a nice walk around Camp David, and got to know each other. And as they told me, he's a pretty charming guy. He put the charm offensive on me. [Laughter] And it worked. No, we're delighted, and tonight we'll have a dinner, just the four of us, and Mrs. Blair and Laura and the two of us, and I'm really looking forward to it. This is a chance for me to tell the Prime Minister how dedicated my administration will be to an alliance that has made a huge difference in the world, an alliance that I firmly believe will make a difference in the years to come. We discussed trade. We discussed defenses. We discussed the Prime Minister's vision of a strong NATO. We discussed a lot of subjects. The thing I want to leave people with the impression of is that ours will be a strong and good personal relationship and a alliance that will stand the test of time. Mr. Prime Minister, welcome. Prime Minister Blair. Thank you very much, Mr. President. Well, I was delighted to come here, and I've been really enthusiastic about our meetings so far. They've been absolutely excellent, very productive, as I hoped and expected. We discussed a whole range of issues. I think we've been through all the issues that you would expect, plus [[Page 336]] some more. And I've found it a very, very useful meeting, indeed. And I just want to make one point by way of introduction, which is that our countries have stood together in some very difficult times, very hard times, some of the most testing times the world has ever known. And the reason we've come through those times together and stronger is because we share the same values; we share the same interests; we have a lot of common history; but I think, most of all, we have the same perception of the world and the belief in freedom and the belief in standing up for what is right and just. And everything that I've heard today confirms for me in my view that that relationship will carry on and strengthen in the years to come. I thank you very much, indeed. President Bush. Thank you, Mr. Prime Minister. Fournier [Ron Fournier, Associated Press]. Missile Defense System Q. Mr. President, have you received a commitment from the Prime Minister to support your missile defense plan, including building missile defense sites in Britain? And Mr. Prime Minister, do you think that there is a threat that requires a missile defense shield, and would you allow missile defense sites to be built on your--in your country? President Bush. Mr. Prime Minister, before we answer that, generally when I ask for one question, we only get one question coming. Well done. [Laughter] We had a long discussion about missile defense. I will, obviously,
