U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE

DAILY PRESS BRIEFING

DPB #33

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1996, 1:07 P.M.

(ON THE RECORD UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED)

MR. DAVIES: Welcome to the State Department briefing. A couple of announcements to start with, and then I can go to questions.

[...]

Third, to let you know -- or to confirm; I think we might have already mentioned it -- that this Friday, March 1, the Department of State will release the 1996 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report. This Congressionally mandated report is an assessment of drug production and trafficking in over 140 countries. It was prepared here in the State Department but with the cooperation of other government agencies.

We have a kind of elaborate roll-out plan for that day. We'll have copies available in the morning. You've got to come get them in person from us at 10:00 a.m. in the Press Office. We'll also have a copy of the report available after 2:00 that you can pull off of the Internet.

I might take this occasion to note that we have a new, shorter Internet address. A couple of months ago I read our Internet address and people started to laugh after about 30 seconds. It's now a lot easier. It's www.state.gov. So even easier to get to us on the Internet. The report will be available on the Internet and through other means as well.

Q (Inaudible)

MR. DAVIES: Dot gov. G-o-v. Gov, like governor. That's g-u-v; I'm sorry.

Q (Inaudible) on CompuServ?

MR. DAVIES: On CompuServ? Use your Web Browser, I think is how you do that.

[...]

Q Same subject. Do you know how the certification announcements are going to be handled? Is it going to be Friday, here?

MR. DAVIES: Yes. I've made an announcement about --

Q Sorry.

MR. DAVIES: That's okay. -- about how all this will work, and we have an announcement that lays out the four or five different vehicles through which you can get that report, starting at about 10:00 a.m. on Friday. If you come by the Press Office, we'll have copies for you.

It will be embargoed. I should have made note of that.

Q Not the report, but the Presidential certification -- the page or two that goes along with it. Is that going to be released?

MR. DAVIES: Is that a part of the report?

Q I think it's separate.

MR. DAVIES: I can check that to see whether it's separate.

Q Embargoed until when?

MR. DAVIES: Until the briefing is concluded. That's correct.

Q Which will start at 12:30?

MR. DAVIES: One o'clock I think it starts, and we'll have both Under Secretary Wirth and Assistant Secretary Gelbard here to talk to you about it.

[...]

Q Thank you.

MR. DAVIES: Thank you.

(Press briefing concluded at 1:43 p.m.)
