U.S. PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON AND FORMER AMBASSADOR YOUNG AT SUMMIT ON AFRICA.
U.S. President Bill Clinton points and former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Andrew Young claps after Clinton's speech at the National Summit on Africa in Washington, February 17. Insisting that "Africa does matter to the United States," President Clinton urged Congress to help pay for a U.N.-led peace-monitoring mission to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. "We have learned the hard way in the United States over decades and decades that the costliest peace is far cheaper than the cheapest war," Clinton said.
