Bush Calls Danish PM With Support Regarding Cartoons

Tuesday, February 7, 2006; 11:08 AM

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush called Denmark's prime minister on Tuesday to voice support for the Nordic country, whose embassies are the target of violent protests over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad.

"I am happy to inform you that just a few minutes ago, President Bush called me to express support and solidarity with Denmark in the light of the violence against Danish and other diplomatic missions," said Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

"We agreed that the way ahead is through dialogue and tolerance, not violence," Rasmussen told a news conference.
