WASHINGTON (AFP) – US President George W. Bush and his wife will attend a ceremony next week to award a Congress medal to exiled Tibetan leader, the Dalai Lama, despite the risk of angering China, the White House said Wednesday.

“The president and Mrs Laura Bush will attend the ceremony,” national security council spokesman Gordon Johndroe told AFP.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will award the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian honor the legislature can bestow, to the 72-year-old Dalai Lama at Capitol Hill on Oct 17, her office said.

“The speaker will be joined by President George W. Bush and (veteran Democratic Senator) Robert Byrd in presenting the award,” it said.

US Embassy opening in Baghdad delayed indefinitely

WASHINGTON, Oct 9 (Reuters) – The opening of the mammoth new U.S. Embassy in Baghdad has been delayed indefinitely while its Kuwaiti contractor fixes a punch list of problems, the State Department said on Tuesday.

The sprawling complex, whose cost is edging toward $750 million, was set to open last month but U.S. lawmakers say shoddy work by the contractor and poor oversight by the State Department have delayed it.

State Department spokesman Sean McCormack rejected claims of inadequate oversight and said there was no indication how long it would be before the new embassy opened.

“I can’t tell you when the embassy is going to open,” said McCormack. “We don’t have an answer.”
