Statement by Press Secretary Fitzwater on the President's Telephone Conversation With Former Hostage Thomas Sutherland


President Bush called Thomas Sutherland in Germany at about 1:15 this afternoon to wish him well following his release from captivity in Lebanon. President Bush said that he and Barbara share the joy of Mr. Sutherland's family in his release. ``I'm glad you appear to be in good health,'' the President said, ``and it's good to hear Terry Waite's comments about the other hostages.'' The President sent his regards to Mr. Sutherland's family and wished him a strong recovery.
