WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush is putting in an appearance at a meeting of the world's richest and fastest-growing nations. It's one more attempt to show decisive global resolve against the unfolding financial crisis.
An administration official confirms Bush's planned appearance Saturday evening in the talks involving Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and the Group of 20 countries. The meeting not far from the White House is intended to help bolster the image of international cooperation in dealing with the economic crisis.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to pre-empt Bush's appearance.
Earlier Saturday, Bush had financial officials from the world's richest countries over to the White House for talks.
