(Newser) – President Bush arrived today in Slovenia, which currently holds the EU's rotating presidency, on his last presidential visit to Europe. He met for 2 hours with European leaders at a  US-EU summit, which then issued a statement that member nations would impose new financial sanctions against Iran unless it ends its uranium enrichment program. Bush will travel later to Berlin, followed by Rome, Paris, and London, reports the Washington Post.

"They can either face isolation or they can have a better relationship with all of us if they verifiably suspend their nuclear enrichment program," the president said.
