George HW Bush, Gorbachev lunch in Houston
Houston: One-time world leaders George HW Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev are renewing their friendship.
The former American president and his former Soviet counterpart had a private lunch on Thursday in Houston. Former secretary of state James A Baker III and former first lady Barbara Bush joined them, along with Gorbachev`s daughter.
Gorbachev hugged Bush as he entered a Houston club and presented Bush and Baker with an autographed copy of a Russian-language book with Gorbachev`s photo on the cover.
The then-presidents first met in 1989 in Malta, shortly after the Berlin Wall fell. They had four US-Soviet summits during their time in office.
In 2001, Gorbachev received a public service award from the Bush Presidential Library Foundation at Texas A&M University.
