YELTSIN:I CANT SAY YOUR BRAINS TURNED OUT TO BE USELESS BUT YOU HELPED US AND WE ARE GRATEFUL.

President Clinton said Russia will play a role but the exact roles remain undetermined. CLINTON:WE AGREED IT WAS IMPORTNAT FOR RUSSIA TO PARTICIAPTE IN IMPLEMENTATION OF AGREEMENT.
President Clinton, who has pledged 25,000 american troops to peacekeeping efforts is certain to share these conversations with leaders of Bosnia and Croatia when they meet tommorrow.
Before the statements, the president shared some history of Roosevelt's home.. from the same chairs Roosevelt and Churchill used while making decisions about the war. And they paid tribute to Roosevelt and his wife. But the president leaves the peace and quiet of Hyde Park to deal with other issues. Tommorow he meets with China's president. And while a Sunday U.N. photo appears to indicate a friendly encounter.. relations are strained.. even resulting in the meeting site being changed because of Chinese objections to a human rights exhibit at the original site.
While no specific answers on the Bosnian issues came out of this Clinton-Yeltsin summit.. more issues including nuclear disarmament were addressed.. and it provided the two with another opportunity to talk.. something just a few years ago.. would not have happened.
