The final farewell.

"The final farewell."

President Bush “bid a reluctant farewell to his close friend and ally Tony Blair on Thursday as the two met at the British prime minister’s final G8 summit. ‘This is the last meeting I will have had with him as prime minister. It’s a nostalgic moment for me,’ Bush told reporters, standing beside Blair after bilateral talks at the gathering of the world’s top powers in Germany. ‘I’m sorry it’s come to be, but that’s what happens in life. We’ll move on,’ he added.”
