WASHINGTON: US President George W. Bush decided Monday to pull a US-Russia civilian nuclear pact from consideration by the US Congress over Moscow's actions in Georgia, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said.
"The president intends to notify Congress that he has today rescinded his prior determination regarding the US-Russia agreement for peaceful nuclear cooperation," according to a statement read by Rice's spokesman Sean McCormack.
