President Bush meets Sunday with French President Jacques Chirac in the French town of Evian for the meeting of the world's seven major industrial powers, plus Russia — known as the Group of Eight, or G8. The two leaders indicate they want to put their differences over Iraq behind them. Chirac was adamantly opposed to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. NPR's Steve Inskeep talks to NPR's White House correspondent Don Gonyea.
