Yushchenko, Bush Meet In Brussels

22 February 2005 -- Ukraine's President Viktor Yushchenko met briefly with U.S. President George W. Bush on the sidelines of today's NATO summit in Brussels.

The meetings come after Bush yesterday called for Ukraine to be welcomed into what he called "the Euro-Atlantic family."

Also today, the European Union and Ukraine signed an Action Plan aimed at increasing economic and political ties.

Yushchenko's government hopes Ukraine can eventually join NATO and the European Union.
