Bush to Host World Leaders Next Week

The White House announced Friday that President Bush plans to host two world leaders in coming days.

King Abdullah II of Jordan will visit Wednesday, while U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan will come on Feb. 13, press secretary Scott McClellan said in a statement.

Topics for Annan's visit include U.N. reform, human rights, international peace and security, and humanitarian and development assistance, McClellan said.

Bush wants to discuss Iraq and the war on terrorism among other issues with Abdullah, a key U.S. ally in the Middle East.
