US, allies in Sunday summit

Washington, March 14 (Reuters): Leaders of the US, Britain and Spain will hold an emergency summit on Sunday in a last-gasp diplomatic effort to overcome opposition in the UN Security Council to a resolution paving the way for war on Iraq.

President George W. Bush will travel to Portugal’s Azores islands to meet British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar in a “final pursuit” of a UN resolution on disarming Iraq, the White House said.

“In an effort to pursue every last bit of diplomacy the President will depart Sunday morning for the Azores... to discuss prospects for resolving the situation peacefully with diplomacy in final pursuit of a United Nations resolution,” White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said.
