Powell to Meet Arroyo, Other Int'l Leaders


WASHINGTON, DC (AP) US Secretary of State Colin Powell is sounding out leaders from Europe, the Middle East, and Asia on the Bush administrations newly enunciated policies for confronting terrorist groups and enemy countries attempting to build weapons of mass destruction.

Powell was planning a meeting Friday in New York City with Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, plus discussions with the foreign ministers of France, Israel, and South Korea and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) foreign secretary.

She said the United States has offered "a road map" to North Korea in its efforts to halt that practice, but "we've had no serious response from Pyongyang."

Terrorism

WASHINGTON, DC (Reuters) - The United States warned anew nations backing terrorism and unveiled plans to spend billions more dollars on arms.

"If you're one of these nations that developed weapons of mass destruction and you're likely to team up with a terrorist group or you're now sponsoring terror, and you don't hold the values that we hold dear true to your heart, then you too are on our watch list," US President George W. Bush said in a speech in Atlanta, Georgia, United States.

Bush, who has made the "war on terrorism" the main theme of his presidency since the Sept. …
