Statement by Press Secretary Fitzwater on the Iraqi Offer To Withdraw From Kuwait
We have not yet examined a full official text of the Revolutionary Command Council's statement, but it clearly contains conditions for Iraqi withdrawal from Kuwait. The United Nations Security Council resolutions are clear in their insistence that the withdrawal be complete and unconditional. Promises alone are not sufficient. There must be not only agreement to comply with all United Nations Security Council resolutions but also immediate and concrete action on the ground.
Note: Press Secretary Fitzwater read the statement to reporters at 8:32 a.m. in the Briefing Room at the White House.
