Q Mr. President, do you think Mr. Nussbaum should resign?

THE PRESIDENT: I'm here with President Kravchuk to discuss a lot of very important issues. I have nothing to add to what I said yesterday. If I have anything else to say it will be later today. I have nothing to say.

Q they'll follow through on the dismantling of the nuclear warheads?

THE PRESIDENT: Yes, I think they will do exactly what they said they'd do. President Kravchuk has had a good deal of success working with his Rada to secure approval of a continued denuclearization of Ukraine, and we will have some things to discuss about that today and some further announcements at our public statement in a couple of hours -- we'll have a some more to say about it.

Q sign the Nonproliferation Treaty, Mr. President?

THE PRESIDENT: I hope they will and I think they're working toward that.

THE PRESIDENT: This is the Ukraine press.

Q (Question asked in Ukrainian.)

PRESIDENT KRAVCHUK: We're just recalling our meetings, but we haven't started talks yet. But we recalled our Kiev meetings.

Q What is the opinion of this meeting, Mr. Clinton?

THE PRESIDENT: I thought they were very good meetings. We made, as you know, a very important agreement which we then signed in Moscow the next day. And I also very much enjoyed being in your country a brief time. We also had a wonderful meal -- and we'll have a good meal today, but there won't be so many courses as there were when we were in -- (laughter.)

PRESIDENT KRAVCHUK: And the newspapers were covering it for a long time.


THE PRESS: Thank you.
