AFP: Blair & Bush
US President George W. Bush (R) and British Prime Minister Tony Blair (L) attend a joint press conference in the East Room of the White House.
Britain and the United States have agreed on a system to relieve 18 of the world's poorest nations, mostly in Africa, of combined debt worth 16.7 billion dollars, The New York Times said.
The agreement follows a meeting this week between Bush and Blair.
