Moscow - September 2nd President Clinton begins his second day in Moscow participating in a working meeting with President Yeltsin. Following their meeting, Presidents Clinton and Yeltsin will hold a joint press conference in which each leader will discuss the results of their meetings and answer questions from the news media.
Later, President Clinton will meet with parliamentary and regional leaders representing a broad range of Russian political and geographic perspectives at Spaso House.
Spaso House was built in 1913-1914 in the new empire style for Nikolay Vtorov, a wealthy Siberian merchant and manufacturer. In 1917, the newly formed Soviet government expropriated all of Moscow's mansions, including Spaso House for official use. It soon became the property of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In 1933, when the United States established relations with the Soviet government, the mansion became the official residence of the American Ambassador to the USSR.
The President will depart Moscow for Northern Ireland that evening.
