MADRID: US President George W. Bush threatened nations with retaliation if they did not vote for a UN resolution backing the Iraq war, according to a transcript published Wednesday of a conversation he had with then-Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar. In the transcript of a meeting on February 22, 2003 – a month before the US-led invasion of Iraq – published in the El Pais daily, Bush tells Aznar that nations like Mexico, Angola, Chile and Cameroon must know that the security of the US is at stake.

During the meeting on his ranch in Texas, Bush says that Angola stood to lose financial aid while Chile could see a free-trade agreement held up in the US Senate if they did not back the resolution, the left-wing paper said.
