CRAWFORD, Texas, Nov. 9 /Standard Newswire/ -- The following text is of remarks by President Bush and German Chancellor Merkel upon arrival:


Bush Ranch
4:32 P.M. CST

PRESIDENT BUSH:  Laura and I are thrilled to welcome the Chancellor and Professor Sauer here to our place.  In Texas when you invite somebody to your home it's an expression of warmth and respect, and that's how I feel about Chancellor Merkel.  And so, Madam Chancellor, welcome.  We're looking forward to having constructive talks as well as a chance to relax and visit.

CHANCELLOR MERKEL:  (As translated.)  I would like to say a very warm thanks to you, George, for issuing this invitation to us.  Already a first glance of the area shows us that this is, indeed, a wonderful place to be and a wonderful atmosphere.  And we have a number of issues that I think we will have now time to discuss later on.  I'm' very grateful that we can do this in such a pleasant, such a wonderful atmosphere, and that we can see each other here again.  And I must say that I'm, again, very grateful to you, Mr. President, for the fact that we can have this exchange of views and to you, Laura, as well.  Thank you.
