In his remarks to the media at the Marquette Hotel in Minneapolis, President Clinton advised that he had spoken with Prime Minister Hosokawa, and that the Prime Minister indicated he intends to resign. The President said he called the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, and the National Security Advisor and had “extended conversations” with them about the situation in Rwanda. "I just want to assure the families of those who are there that we are doing everything we possibly can to be on top of the situation to take all appropriate steps to try to assure the safety of our citizens there," said the President. Media questions focused on these topics: U.S.-Japanese trade talks and economic policy; Prime Minister Hosokawa’s decision to resign and how it may impact the situation with North Korea and China; and the situation in Bosnia. close
