Washington (AP) Asia-Pacific nations meeting this weekend in Peru will get pressure from the U.S. to support the plan reached by the G-20 countries for dealing with the world financial crisis.

President Bush leaves for the summit this morning.

White House spokeswoman Dana Perino says expectations are modest. She says Bush hopes the meeting will endorse the 47-point action plan drawn up last weekend during the G-20 summit in Washington.

The White House says the president will be at the summit for only 48 hours. But during that time he plans side meetings with various leaders, including China's Hu Jintao and Russia's Dmitri Medvedev.
