Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release July 13, 1995


President Clinton has had several conversations today related to Bosnia. He reviewed the situation in Bosnia following recent events in and around Srebrenica with members of his senior military command during this morning's annual CINCs briefing.

Tonight, the President has had conversations with French President Jacques Chirac and German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and he plans a conversation with British Prime Minister John Major tomorrow.

In these discussions and in a series of follow-up conversations between our governments, the United States and our allies reaffirmed the importance of the North Atlantic Alliance and the importance of a continued UN presence in Bosnia and a common position toward the situation in the enclaves and Bosnia generally.

There will be follow-up conversations at various levels as the United States government works to minimize the humanitarian suffering in Bosnia, and to strengthen the UN mission in Bosnia (UNPROFOR).
