Addressing the media from the White House South Lawn, President Clinton advised that the Serbs violated the understandings of a cease-fire agreement they made with the United Nations and the Russians. As a result, the situation in and around Gorazde “remains grim and uncertain.” The President said the United Nations commander on the ground, General Rose, made the judgement at several points over the last couple of days that NATO close-air support was either not practically feasible or would not be helpful under the circumstances. In Gorazde, the United States (working through NATO) is empowered only to provide close-air support to U.N. troops when they are under siege or under threat of attack on request of the U.N. commander. The President added that U.S. national security principals would meet to consider what else the United States should do in this circumstance. The President took questions from the White House press pool. close
