Statement by Press Secretary Fitzwater on Peru's Drug Interdiction Efforts

1991-09-20

After talking with President Fujimori of Peru, President Bush told him that the Government of Peru's agreement with the coca farmers opposing drug trafficking and in favor of alternative development represents an imaginative approach which we would like to support. He also said that President Fujimori's interest in attacking the drug traffickers in an ``implacable interdiction effort'' offers hope for the future and that the United States wishes to assist in the most helpful way possible.

Note: The statement referred to President Alberto Fujimori of Peru.
