Mrs. Bush's Remarks After a Visit to Stavropoleos Church
9:44 A.M. (Local)
MRS. BUSH: Just give me a chance to thank everyone here. We've been in Romania. We've really thanked President Basescu and Maria Basescu for being such wonderful hosts for President Bush and me, and for NATO. I think they've had a very successful NATO meeting, and the spouses of all the leaders had a very good time too. We're going to go off to one more event and get to see the Romanian gymnasts, which I think will be a lot of fun.
But I especially want to take this opportunity to thank the Fathers and the Sisters who are here at this beautiful church. Thank you for saving all of these magnificent items of Christianity for all of us who are Christians to be able to venerate.

Thank you all, thanks so much, and thanks to everyone in Romania for putting up with the closed streets and all the other things they had to put up while all the leaders were here. Thank you for your hospitality.
