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.
