Clinton ends European tour

President Clinton ended his European tour with an historic speech to the Russian Duma

American president Clinton ended his European tour with an historic speech to the Russian Duma. He expressed his hopes for good cooperation with a strong Russia. Clinton also offered the US support for Russian membership of the World Trade Organisation.

On Sunday, 4 June, both world leaders discussed arms control, with the Russians expressing again their concern over US plans to develop an anti-missile system. The two countries approved a deal to destroy 68 metric tons of weapons-grade plutonium and decided to build a high-tech global missile control centre in Moscow.

The last event of Clinton's European trip will be a meeting with Ukrainian president Leonid Kuchma. Clinton will offer financial help to Ukraine for closing down the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
