UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said on Monday he would press President Bush over climate change when they meet in Washington on Tuesday, Reuters reports. "On climate change, I'm encouraged by a high level of expectations as well as representation on that special high level meeting on Sept. 24," Ban said, referring to a conference on the environment that he has called for September on the sidelines of the annual UN General Assembly. "I would like to discuss this matter with President Bush and would expect President Bush and the American administration will be represented at the highest possible level." JULIA WHITTY
