US President George W Bush and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh emerged from their summit of over an hour, at the Hyderabad House in central Delhi, to make an announcement on their deliberations and address questions from the press on the sunny, flower-lined lawns.

Smiles, that appeared to be ready to break into grins, hovered on both their faces as they came up to the podium. Bush particularly looked very relaxed and he warmly said "Please!" when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh asked if he should start.

Prior to their arrival members of Manmohan Singh's Cabinet could be seen congregating and chatting. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice emerged first dressed in a stylish black suit. Singh and Bush followed about five minutes later.
