STATEMENT BY THE PRESS SECRETARY
Presidential Travel to Denmark
The President will visit the Kingdom of Denmark on March 21 following his meeting in Helsinki with Russian President Boris Yeltsin. This will be the first visit to Denmark by a sitting U.S. President and will provide President Clinton with an opportunity to celebrate our strong ties of friendship.
The visit will also highlight the key role of the Nordic states in helping to build an undivided Europe as well as the important role being played by Denmark in promoting security and stability in the Baltic region. The President looks forward to meeting Queen Margrethe II and to discussing a wide range of bilateral and regional issues with Prime Minister Rasmussen and other Danish leaders.
