Vice President Gore and Russian Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin are
co-chairs of a commission set up by Presidents Clinton and Yeltsin at
the Vancouver Summit in June 1993. The U.S.-Russian Joint Commission
on Economic and Technological Cooperation has held three meetings, the
last of which was in Washington, D.C. on June 22-23, 1994. The
Commission provides a framework for promoting a partnership between
the United States and Russia based on principles enumerated in earlier
declarations. These include a shared commitment to democracy and
human rights; a market economy and the rule of law; and international
peace and stability. The Commission's work is an effort to realize
concrete benefits from this partnership.
