In his talks with Mr Hu today, Mr Bush "raised his concerns about the situation in Tibet and encouraged the Chinese Government to engage in substantive dialogue with the Dalai Lama's representatives and to allow access for journalists and diplomats," the White House said.
Mr Bush's national security adviser Stephen Hadley said the President "pushed very hard" on the need for restraint in the violence in Tibet as well as the need for consultation with representatives of the Dalai Lama.

How bush can ever say anything about china is beyond me, and anyone in this world. Bush is responsible for how many deaths?
President Bush, in a phone call Wednesday to Chinese President Hu Jintao, voiced concern about China's crackdown on Tibet and addressed an embarrassing arms shipment flap that has strained U.S.-China relations.
Bush told Hu a U.S. shipment of nuclear missile fuses to Taiwan was a mistake, U.S. National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley said.
"It came up very briefly," Hadley told reporters. "Basically, the president indicated that a mistake had been made. There was very little discussion about it."
