U.S. President George W. Bush vowed on Saturday to maintain international pressure to force Iran to stop alleged foreign interference and to suspend its disputed nuclear program.

Speaking to reporters at his Texas ranch with visiting Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Bush said Iran needs to "stop exporting terror."

Bush made the remarks on the eve of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's first visit to Iraq. Iran and Iraq fought had an eight-year-old border war in the 1980's.

The Bush administration has accused Iran of supplying Iraqi militants with bombs used to attack U.S. soldiers. More than 3,970 U.S. soldiers have been killed since war of Iraq broke out in March 2003.

In addition, Washington also accuses Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program. Iran always denies U.S. charges and insisted that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.
