WASHINGTON, May 17: President George Bush will meet President Pervez Musharraf in Camp David on June 24 instead of the White House, US officials said on Saturday.

The change of venue, the officials said, aims to indicate the importance the US gives to its relations with Pakistan.

The president is expected to arrive in New York on the evening of June 20 from London.

His arrival could also be delayed if he goes to Paris. If he comes on June 20, the president may spend two days in Boston before coming to Washington on the evening of June 23. But if the visit to France were finalized, then he would spend only a few hours in Boston with his son.
