THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary (Kiev, Ukraine) ________________________________________________________________________ For Immediate Release June 5, 2000
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
I am pleased to announce that today the United States has terminated the commercial space launch trade agreement with Ukraine. This decision eliminates launch quotas and gives U.S. firms greater opportunity to enter into commercial space launch joint ventures with Ukrainian partners without limit and reflects Ukraine's steadfast commitment to international nonproliferation norms.
