President Bush has delivered his final State of the Union Address to Congress and the American people. He urged the American public to support his Iraq policies and called on lawmakers to take actions to boost the US economy. VOA Correspondent Paula Wolfson reports.

For the seventh and final time, George W. Bush walked to the podium of the US House of Representatives to deliver the annual State of the Union Address. He did not reflect on the past, but he did talk at length about the issues that will shape his legacy, starting with the war in Iraq. 'Al-Qaeda is on the run in Iraq and this enemy will be defeated.' About half of the speech dealt with abroad policy with a heavy focus on the Middle East. Mr. Bush also spoke of his determination to protect the American economy. On this and other matters, Mr. Bush said everyone should put politics aside. Two of the Democrats running for their party's presidential nomination Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were in the chamber for the president's speech. The official Democratic response to the address was delivered by Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius. 'Conditions we face at home and abroad are results of choices made and challenges unmet.' She said the American people are not afraid to face difficult choices, but have no more patience for divisive politics. Paula Wolfson, VOA News, the White House.

Residents in Florida are voting today in a key primary for US Republican presidential hopefuls.

Kennedy.

The US Central Bank today begins a key 2-day policy meeting that many economies predict will result in another interest rate cut to help boost the troubled economy and stop a sell-off in global stock markets. A week ago, the Federal Reserve cut the key interest rate by 3 quarters of 1% down to 3.5%.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Australia's Foreign Minister Stephen Smith Monday stress the enduring nature of the two countries' alliance despite Australia's decision to remove troops from Iraq by mid-year. Smith said Australia's troop and diplomatic commitment to Afghanistan will continue. VOA's David Gollust reports.

Smith is the highest-level Australian official to visit Washington since Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's center-left government took power in November, ending 12 years of Conservative rule by John Howard, a close ally and friend of President Bush. At a joint press appearance with Rice, the Australian Foreign Minister said the Canberra government will keep its campaign pledge to withdraw the 575-member Australian troop contingent from Iraq by the middle of the year. 'We are sticking absolutely to the election commitment that we took to the Australian people. But I don't for one moment think that in any way it has any significance in terms of our long-standing enduring alliance.' The talk also dealt with other issues of major world concerns including Iran's nuclear program, with Rice tacitly admitting that the new draft UN sanctions resolution against Iran falls short of what the United States would have hoped for. David Gollust, VOA News, the State Department.

Some 500 Afghan women have gathered in a rare demonstration in southern Kandahar province, demanding the release of a female American aid worker kidnapped on Saturday.
