President George W. Bush said an agreement among leading Iraqi politicians is a promising sign of political progress, but that the pact on some issues that have blocked national reconciliation is not enough. "The agreement begins to establish new power-sharing agreements, commits to supporting bottom-up security and political initiatives, and advances agreement among Iraq's leadership on several key legislative benchmarks," Bush said in a brief statement upon arriving in Albuquerque on Monday. Bush had called Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and other top leaders from Air Force One before he came to New Mexico for a political fundraising reception.
