U.S. President Bush and United Kingdom Prime Minister John Major briefed reporters on a plan to provide foreign aid to the republics of the Soviet Union in the form of food. The plan would bypass the Soviet government and provide the aid directly to the republics, “to those people who are in need,” according to the prime minister. The food aid plan was linked by President Bush to the foreign assistance proposal for the Soviet Union agreed to by the seven industrialized nations at the economic summit in July, 1991.
