What Blair wrote to Bush

Martin Rosenbaum | 11:29 UK time, Friday, 29 September 2006

I should add to the post below that in some cases Downing Street did decide it was not against the public interest to reveal messages of congratulations sent by Tony Blair to newly elected or re-elected world leaders.

They sent the BBC copies of about 50 such letters, which varied in warmth and formality, and included ones addressed to the following:

George W Bush in 2000 (but not one from 2004)

Jose Maria Aznar in 2000

Ariel Sharon in 2003

Mahmoud Abbas in 2003
