Baker and Bessmertnykh on Baltic States
Secretary of State James Baker and Soviet Foreign Minister Alexander Bessmertnykh spoke to reporters after meeting in the State Department. Although a topic of discussion was the potential upcoming summit between President Bush and Soviet President Gorbachev, neither man would speak to reporters on the subject. Mr. Bessmertnykh supported the U.S. enforcement of the U.N. resolution allowing the use of force to remove Iraqi forces from Kuwait, although cautioned that he hoped the military action would not grow beyond the limited Middle East area. Mr. Baker said the United States had been assured by Iran that Iraqi planes found in Iran during the previous week would remain in Iran for the duration of the conflict. close
