Bush, Blair Speak on Iraq

In a long telephone call, the leaders of the United States and Britain have reiterated the need for Iraq to give up its weapons of mass destruction.

The office of Prime Minister Tony Blair says Blair and President Bush spoke Friday about the need for Saddam Hussein to be disarmed by force if he won't disarm voluntarily.

The conversation came as United Nations weapons inspectors prepare to present a key report on their progress to the Security Council on Monday.

Blair plans to travel to the United States to meet Bush at Camp David on Friday. Blair is Bush's staunchest support in his campaign to disarm Iraq.
