Q Mr. President, do you think that Bosnia should be at the top of the agenda for the NATO consideration?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, we'll discuss that and a number of other things. We have a lot of issues to discuss. But the Prime Minister and I will discuss that and several other issues. As you know, he's just ended a tour in the -- of six months in the presidency of the EU and, in my judgment, he and Belgium did a superb job. They were very instrumental in the successes we had last summer in the G-7 meeting, which laid the foundation for the adoption of the GATT Round. So we're going to talk a little about that, too.

Q Mr. President, are you finding it difficult to engage in diplomacy after your personal loss?

THE PRESIDENT: No, I'm glad to be -- I'm glad to be here. My family and my friends and my mother's friends, we had a wonderful day yesterday, and I'm doing what I should be doing. I'm glad to have the opportunity to be here and go back to work.

THE PRESS: Thank you.
