THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary (Prague, Czech Republic) ______________________________________________________________ For Immediate Release January 12, 1994
REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT IN PHOTO OPPORTUNITY WITH PRESIDENT KOVAC OF SLOVAKIA Library U.S. Ambassador's Residence Prague, Czech Republic
11:06 A.M. (L)
Q President Clinton, what's been the reception so far to what you have brought to these nations?
THE PRESIDENT: So far, so good.
Q No objections, sir?
THE PRESIDENT: We've had three different conversations, of course, and this will be the fourth. And each of them, although leaders can characterize them for themselves, but I have been very pleased so far.
Q Have they raised security issues with you, that they are worried that if there should be some kind of resurgence in Russia that they feel protected, or are they still worried about this?
THE PRESIDENT: No one has said that they expect something like that in the near future. What no one knows is whether the future of Europe will be like its past or if it will be different.
Q Are you saying that all have accepted the Partnership so far?
THE PRESIDENT: You'll have to ask them when we do the press conference.
THE PRESS: Thank you.
