CAMP DAVID, Md. (AP) -- President Bush says he strongly believes "the best way to alleviate world poverty is through trade."

He made the comments today at Camp David in a joint news briefing with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. It was their second meeting in less than a month.

Like the earlier one in Sao Paulo, Brazil, biofuels and world trade talks dominated the session.

Bush calls their joint desire to see a global free trade deal "the most compelling part of the opportunity to work together." But he says "what we won't do is accept a unilateral deal."

Although Silva calls the meeting "the most productive one" of all, he says -- quote -- "If someone asks me, `What are you taking back to Brazil,' I would say nothing. I'm not taking anything back to Brazil."
