Statement on the Death of Ezra Taft Benson

May 31, 1994

    It was with sadness that I learned today of the passing of Ezra Taft 
Benson, who served our country and his church with ceaseless dedication 
over a long life productively lived.
    It is no accident that one of Mr. Benson's most famous books 
emphasized in its words and thoughts the three values his life best 
represented--church, God, and country. He was a leader of his church for 
five decades, he preached with passion for unity, solidarity, and 
responsibility within the family, and he served ably in the Eisenhower 
administration as Agriculture Secretary.
    As we celebrate D-Day and the liberation of Europe, it is important 
to remember that Mr. Benson was the first representative of his church 
to reenter post-war Europe, where he distributed aid and lifted the 
spirits of thousands of survivors.
    His friends and fellow believers remind us tonight that Ezra Taft 
Benson was a lifelong scouter, a strong defender of the Constitution, 
the creator of the soil bank, a religious man who expanded the 
membership of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and 
someone who believed and preached the idea that families come first.
    We rejoice in his service, we remember his life, and we extend our 
heartfelt sympathies to his family, his church, and his admirers

Text of Remarks at a Dinner Hosted by President Oscar Scalfaro of Italy 
in Rome

June 3, 1994

    Mr. President and distinguished guests, the British historian 
Trevelyan wrote of General Garibaldi that he would live on as ``the 
incarnate symbol of two passions not likely soon to die out of the 
world, the love of country and the love of freedom.'' As we commemorate 
this 50th anniversary of the events that returned freedom to your great 
country, I want to praise the work you have done, Mr. President, as also 
embodying your commitment to the freedom-loving Italian people and the 
democratic Italian state.

    Italy's transformation over the past half century is a modern 
miracle. From the ruins of World War II, it has become one of the 
world's great economies, an anchor of transatlantic security, and a 
sturdy democracy, which, like our own, is renewing its strength by 
pursuing reforms.

    As we gather this week to pay special homage to those whose courage, 
vision, and sacrifice helped to create and sustain a republican Italy 
and a Western alliance of democratic nations, the United States salutes 
you, Mr. President, for your past and present efforts to safeguard 
Italian democracy. Mr. President, on behalf of the American people, who 
share so many bonds of kinship and fellowship with the Italian people, I 
offer a toast to you and to your country: Viva L'Italia!

Statement by the Press Secretary on the President's Telephone 
Conversations With President Boris Yeltsin of Russia and President Kim 
Yong-sam of South Korea

June 3, 1994

    President Clinton spoke separately today with President Yeltsin and 
President Kim Yong-sam of the Republic of Korea, who is currently in 
Moscow. The topic of both calls was the current situation in North 
    President Clinton told President Yeltsin that following the IAEA's 
report to the United Nations that the continuity of safeguards had been 
broken, the United States is pursuing the issue of sanctions in the 
United Nations Security Council. They discussed President Yeltsin's 
proposal that an international forum on the Korean situation be 
convened. President Clinton said that such a meeting might be 
appropriate at some point while underscoring the need first to return 
the North Korean nuclear issue to the United Nations Security Council. 
The two agreed to remain in close contact as the issue develops.
    In the conversation with President Kim, both Presidents agreed that 
the next step is to pursue the issue of sanctions in the United Nations 
Security Council. President Clinton reaffirmed the United States desire 
for a diplomatic resolution of this issue but emphasized the United 
States commitment to the security of the Republic of Korea. They, too, 
agreed to work closely together in addressing the issue.
