Before briefing reporters on a new policy on the use of land mines, President Clinton spoke about the suicide of Admiral Boorda, the Chief of Naval Operation. He then called for a moment of silence. He then announced that he is beginning an international intiative to outlaw anti-personnel land mines. He emphasized that the U.S. will stop using all “dumb” mines, which can only be detonated or cleared, not deactivated, except in Korea and that he would call for a universal ban even on “smart” mines this fall at the 51st U.N. General Assembly. close
