WHITE HOUSE (AP) -- President Bush and his Iraq War ally Tony Blair wrap up two days of talks today at the White House.

The president and British leader have been spending time on the prospects for Mideast peace following the death of Yasser Arafat.  Bush has called the Palestinian chiefďż˝s passing an ďż˝openingďż˝ and Blair says creating a peaceful Palestinian state must be the international communityďż˝s highest priority.

The two plan a joint news conference after this morning�s Oval Office talks.

The meetings come as U-S and Iraqi forces try to smash rebel holdouts in the insurgent stronghold of Fallujah. The two leaders have said their goal is to bolster security in Iraq so planned elections can be held in January.
