ROME (Reuters) - Italy slammed U.S. President Bush on Thursday for shunning an international accord to tackle global warming.

Environment Minister Willer Bordon called Bush's decision to go back on the 1997 Kyoto accord "extremely grave" and urged European governments to react.

Italy thought it had brokered a deal among the world's most industrialized countries at a summit of G8 ministers in Trieste earlier this month when they pledged to finalize the Kyoto pact.
