WASHINGTON (AP) _ President Bush has invited Fernando De la Rua, the president of Argentina, to the White House for a meeting Apr. 19.

Bush ``welcomes a working visit with the president just in advance of the Summit of the Americas in Quebec City'' next month, spokesman Ari Fleischer said Tuesday.

``The United States and Argentina share a broad agenda of common interests and values in the hemisphere and beyond, and the president looks forward to reviewing ways to strengthen cooperation in pursuit of common goals,'' Fleischer said.
