President Bush and Russian President Yeltsin delivered brief remarks in the Rose Garden at the White House after their meeting, scheduled as part of President Yeltsin’s four day visit to the United States. In his remarks, President Bush lauded President Yeltsin for being the first democratically elected leader in the 1,000 year history of Russia. President Bush said he welcomed working with the Russian leader, but cautioned that the United States would continue to work closely with the Soviet government of Soviet President Gorbachev. President Yeltsin, speaking in Russian which was subsequently translated into English by an interpreter, said Russia is irrevocably committed to democracy, and would not go back to Communism. Answering questions following the prepared remarks, President Bush said he would not mind if the Soviet Union cut off all foreign aid to Cuba. President Yeltsin had previously stated that the Russian parliament had passed a resolution terminating all foreign aid to other regimes and countries. close
