Tony Blair is to visit President Bush on Wednesday in what likely will be the British prime minister's final visit to the White House as the country's leader.

Blair and Bush will discuss a number of issues, Blair's official spokesman told reporters, saying that climate change, the crisis in Darfur, the G-8 conference and
Iraq likely will top the agenda.

Blair announced last week that he will step down as prime minister on June 27, ending a decade-long premiership that has, in part, been defined by his close relationship with Bush and the United States.

Blair and Bush are to have dinner together at the White House before a working session in the Oval Office on Thursday, which will be followed by a joint press conference.

In an interview with NBC Nightly News on Tuesday, Blair said he got used to a "very intense" level of criticism over Britain's participation in the Iraq war, and praised Bush's leadership.
