Strauss: Clinton Will Have Great Sensitivity

The U. S. ambassador to Moscow, Robert Strauss reassured Russia's government Thursday that it would have a stable American partner to deal with during the transition from a Bush to a Clinton presidency. At an inaugural Moscow luncheon hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Strauss was asked by President Boris Yeltsin's advisor on political affairs whether Russia should turn to Bush or Clinton between now and Jan. 20. ""President Bush is 100 percent in charge"", Strauss told Sergei Stankevich and 50 top-level dignitaries and journalists at the lunch. The Washington D. C. -based organization invested more than $1 million to open its only branch office last month, aiming to sponsor research and fellowships and act as a bridge for Russian and American relations. ""It looks like your transition will coincide with our period of political turbulence here"", Stankevich said. He was referring to the upcoming session of Parliament due to convene Dec. 1.
