The White House confirmed yesterday that Presidents Bill Clinton and Boris Yeltsin will meet in March. No exact date has been set. Although it is Washington’s turn to host the talks, U.S. officials indicated that, in view of Yeltsin’s health, the meeting could take place in a third country near to Russia, or in Moscow itself. Earlier yesterday Clinton and Yeltsin spoke by phone, their first conversation since Yeltsin’s heart surgery last month. (Reuter, December 5)
