President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum led a party of top senior officials to welcome the US president upon arrival at the airport.

Soon after arriving at the Mushref Palace, the US President accompanied by Sheikh Khalifa ascended the dais of honour where the national anthems of the UAE and US were played while the artillery fired 21 gun salute.

President Bush then inspected a guard of honour and headed to the Palace's main reception lounge where he shook hands with a number of Sheikhs, ministers and top UAE officials.

For his part, Sheikh Khalifa shook hands with members of delegation accompanying the US president which included US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, White House Chief of Staff Joshua B. Bolten and Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs Stephen Hadley.
