Bush urges nations to keep Iraq pledges

CRAWFORD, Texas (Reuters) -
President George W. Bush on Saturday urged other nations to make good on $13 billion in pledges to help the new Baghdad government and said the United States had come too far to abandon
Iraq now

"We will encourage other nations to fulfill the monetary pledges they have already made to help the new Iraqi government succeed," Bush said. The international community promised about $13 billion, but so far only about $3 billion has been paid out.

U.S. diplomats will go to Asia, Europe and the Middle East to prod donors, some of whom fear their money will be used for security rather than reconstruction.
