"Mr. President, it is a real pleasure to welcome you and Mrs. Bush here this evening. Over our six days in the United States, we have much enjoyed the chance to dwell on the history of the relationship between our two countries, as well as celebrating its present strength and vitality. I would like to thank everyone for the warmth and kindness extended to us. I would also like to take this opportunity on the day that has seen the formal transfer of power to the devolved Northern Ireland government, to thank you and your predecessors for your contribution to bringing peace to Northern Ireland."

"This morning the world witnessed yet another advance for freedom and peace. The people of Northern Ireland took control of their future when Catholics and Protestants came together to form a new government that offers the prospect of peace and reconciliation after years of violence and division. In Belfast today, we're seeing once again how democracy and freedom can help heal a wounded world. Your Majesty thank you for your words tonight, and for the love and affection you have shown the American people over many years."
Queen Elizabeth II in a dinner toast at the British Embassy on Tuesday evening thanked the United States for its help in finally bringing peace to Northern Ireland.
The queen hosted the dinner for President George W. Bush and the First Lady, Laura Bush. Former US President George H.W. Bush, and former First Lady Barbara Bush also attended.
"I would also like to take this opportunity, on the day that has seen the formal transfer of power to the devolved Northern Ireland government, to thank you and your predecessors for your contribution to bringing peace in Northern Ireland," the queen said on Tuesday night at a dinner at the British Embassy.
The major breakthrough in the Northern Ireland impasse emerged from an initiative by Bush's immediate predecessor, President Bill Clinton.
He appointed former Senator George Mitchell as a mediator in the mid-1990s.
Despite numerous setbacks, Mitchell first got cease-fires in place and finally arranged in 1998 what became known as the Good Friday accord between John Hume and David Trimble, the moderate Roman Catholic and Protestant leaders.
In 2005, Bush's government joined forces with the British and Irish governments and demanded conclusively that the Catholic Irish Republican Army disarm.
Within two months it had happened. Negotiations between the hard-line forces of both sides led finally led to Tuesday's turnover of power to a government led by loyalist Protestant First Minister Ian Paisley with Catholic republican Martin McGuinness as his deputy.
In his return toast Tuesday night, Bush also spoke of the news from Northern Ireland.
"The people of Northern Ireland took control of their future, and Catholics and Protestants came together to form a new government that offers the prospect of peace and reconciliation after years of violence and division," he said.
"In Belfast today we're seeing once again how democracy and freedom can help heal a wounded world," he added.
Tuesday's dinner puts the finishing touches on the queen's six-day visit to the United States.
She also used her dinner speech to "thank everyone for the warmth and kindness extended" to her during her visit, which was her fifth to the United States in 50 years.
Bush thanked the Queen for the "love and affection" she has "shown the American people over many years."
Earlier on Tuesday, the queen, accompanied by her husband Prince Philip, carried out a full day of sightseeing in the US capital, paying a visit to the Children's National Medical Centre with First Lady Laura Bush, and paying tribute to American soldiers with a trip to the National World War II memorial.
It was the British Monarch's first visit to the war memorial, which was dedicated in 2004.
The queen, a teenage princess during World War II, won permission in 1945 from her father, King George VI, to join the war effort as a driver in the Women's Auxiliary Territorial Service, the women's branch of the British Army.
She became known as No. 230873 Second Subaltern Elizabeth Windsor.
