Statement by Press Secretary Fitzwater on President Bush's Meeting in New York, New York, With President Vaclav Havel of Czechoslovakia


At 6:10 p.m. President Bush met with President Havel of Czechoslovakia. President Havel discussed the status of his country's economic reform measures. He indicated that considerable progress is being made.

President Bush thanked President Havel for their early support of the U.N. sanctions against Iraq, saying, ``We understand your sacrifices in supporting the U.N. embargo, and we are grateful.''

President Bush informed President Havel that the United States will lift travel restrictions on Czechoslovakia's diplomats in the United States. These restrictions were imposed before Czechoslovakia's moves toward democracy.

President Bush said the U.S. interest in Czechoslovakia's success is very strong: ``We want to see you succeed.''
