US President George W Bush on Wednesday spoke with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and praised India's "impressive response" to the Tsunami disaster that killed about a quarter of a million people in several countries.

The leaders discussed the "good cooperation between India and the United States in coordinating the response in conjunction with other countries in the region that were affected and the cooperation (that) "exemplifies the bilateral relationship that continues to grow stronger," White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan said in Washington on Wednesday.

The two leaders "also talked about working together to further our economic dialogue and to take advantage of the great potential in the bilateral economic relationship," McClellan said.
