THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Vice President
Statement by Vice President Al Gore
For the past five years, I have worked closely with Viktor Stepanovich Chernomyrdin to enhance cooperation between Russia and the United States, and to advance the cause of reform in Russia. We have accomplished a great deal in this time for the benefit of both our peoples.
President Clinton and I will continue to work closely with the Russian government to build a peaceful and more stable world, support Russia's aspirations for reform and a prosperous and democratic future, and deepen our engagement with the people of Russia.
