Vajgl: Statement of Bush about the relations with Ukajina

Ljubljana, 2 August - The press representative of the Slovenian foreign minister, Mr. Ivo Vajgl, stated for STA (Slovenian press Agency) in association with yesterday's speech of the American president, Mr. George Bush, which was held in Kiev, that: "The relation of the American administration with the Yugoslav crisis, above all with the process of Slovenian independence, have been made known to us from direct contacts and especially through discussions which the deputy of the American foreign minister, Mr. Lawrence Eagleburgher had in Washington with the Slovenian foreign minister, Dr. Dimitrij Rupel. From these discussions it can be concluded, without doubt, that the American administration has greatly changed its relation to the Yugoslav crisis, that it has become aware that the respect of the right of a nation to self-determination is a basic principle, and the only principle which could bring about a peaceful outcome of the Yugoslav crisis. For Slovenia this means that it will be able to continue its process of disassociation without disturbance. Although it is still prepared to solve all problems and open issues with other partners and interested parties in a peaceful and constructive manner. That is why we have also agreed and obligated ourselves to cooperate in negotiations to which we are bound by the Brioni declaration.
