During an appearance before the Chamber of Commerce in Lancaster, Pa., Bush said he'd be "willing to sit down" with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad "so long as he suspends ... his nuclear weapons program" in response to a question from the audience.
For diplomacy to work, Bush said, both sides need something from each other.
"Negotiations just for the sake of negotiations oftentimes send wrong signals," Bush said. "Negotiations to achieve consequences are worth doing."
"We are willing to sit down with him so long as he suspends his program," Bush said. "In other words, it's his choice, not mine anymore."
