Statement on the Japan-United States Semiconductor Agreement


August 2, 1996

    I want to congratulate Ambassador Barshefsky and her entire 
negotiating team on the agreement reached today on semiconductors. Their 
tireless efforts to advance our Nation's economic interests around the 
world have reaped enormous benefits for America's businesses and 
workers.
    This agreement achieves our goals of transparency and monitoring of 
the semiconductor market to assure market access for our companies. The 
semiconductor industry serves as an engine for growth and jobs and has 
regained its position as world leader in semiconductor production.

Message to the Senate Transmitting the Canada-United States Protocol for 
the Protection of Migratory Birds

August 2, 1996

To the Senate of the United States:

    With a view to receiving the advice and consent of the Senate to 
ratification, I transmit herewith the Protocol between the United States 
and Canada Amending the 1916 Convention for the Protection of Migratory 
Birds in Canada and the United States, with a related exchange of notes, 
signed at Washington on December 14, 1995.
    The Protocol, which is discussed in more detail in the accompanying 
report of the Secretary of State, represents a considerable achievement 
for the United States in conserving migratory birds and balancing the 
interests of conservationists, sports hunters, and indigenous people. If 
ratified and properly implemented, the Protocol should further enhance 
the management and protection of this important resource for the benefit 
of all users.
    The Protocol would replace a protocol with a similar purpose, which 
was signed January 30, 1979, (Executive W, 96th Cong., 2nd Sess. 
(1980)), and which I, therefore, desire to withdraw from the Senate.
    I recommend that the Senate give early and favorable consideration 
to the Protocol, with exchange of notes, and give its advice and consent 
to ratification.
                                            William J. Clinton
The White House,
August 2, 1996.

Message to the Senate Transmitting the United Nations Convention to 
Combat Desertification With Annexes

August 2, 1996

To the Senate of the United States:

    I transmit herewith, for the advice and consent of the Senate to 
ratification, the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification in 
Those Countries Experiencing Serious Drought and/or Desertification, 
Particularly in Africa, with Annexes, adopted at Paris, June 17, 1994, 
and signed by the United States on October 14, 1994. The report of the 
Department of State is also enclosed for the information of the Senate.
    The purpose of the Convention is to combat desertification and 
mitigate the effects of drought on arid, semi-arid, and dry sub-humid 
lands through effective action at all levels. In particular, the 
Convention addresses the fundamental causes of famine and food 
insecurity in Africa, by stimulating more effective partnership between 
governments, local communities, nongovernmental organi- 

[[Page 1398]]

zations, and aid donors, and by encouraging the dissemination of 
information derived from new technology (e.g., early warning of 
impending drought) to farmers.
    The United States has strongly supported the Convention's innovative 
approach to combatting dryland degradation. I believe it will help 
Africans and others to make better use of fragile resources without 
requiring increased development assistance. Ratification by the United 
States would promote effective implementation of the Convention and is 
likely to encourage similar action by other countries whose 
participation would also promote effective implementation.
    United States obligations under the Convention would be met under 
existing law and ongoing assistance programs.
    I recommend that the Senate give early and favorable consideration 
to this Convention and its Annexes, with the declaration described in 
the accompanying report of the Secretary of State, and give its advice 
and consent to ratification.
                                            William J. Clinton
The White House,
August 2, 1996.
