Clinton, Major Patch Things Up

Compiled From Wire Services

President Clinton and British Prime Minister John Major buried their public differences today, lavishing praise on one another and staking out common positions on Bosnia, relations with Russia and in dealing with Iraq.

“Throughout this century, the United States and the United Kingdom have stood together on the great issues that have confronted our people,” Clinton said.

“We have, as always, found much to agree about.”

Tension developed between the two allies over last month’s visit to Washington by Gerry Adams, head of Sinn Fein, a political party that supports the outlawed Irish Republican Army.
