Asked for a reaction to today’s Guardian story suggesting that President Bush might be willing to support the UK’s debt relief plan for poorer countries in return for backing for a proposal to write off debts incurred by Saddam, the PMS said that her colleague had explained the general principles of the G8 Summit at both of yesterday’s briefings. Heads of Government would look at the broader Middle East and also Africa following on from the process begun at Evian. No doubt other issues would be dealt with in the margins of the Summit, many of which might not grab the headlines but which were important nevertheless.
