CNN20: Partnership for Peace, January 10, 1994

Aired January 10, 2000 - 1:22 p.m. ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

ANNOUNCER: Bringing you the world for 20 years, this is CNN.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

WILLIAM J. CLINTON, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: I'm very pleased that our NATO allies approved our proposal for the partnership for peace. Ultimately, the partnership will lead to the enlargement of NATO and help us to build a security base not on Europe's divisions, but on the potential of its integration.

WOLF BLITZER, CNN WASHINGTON ANCHOR: The NATO allies as a whole saw this as the next step in the aftermath of the Cold War, to try to make NATO less of a frightening aspect to those countries and to try to bring them in in modest military cooperation with the NATO allies.

MANFRED WOERNER, NATO SECRETARY-GENERAL: I call on our cooperation partners to seize this opportunity to build the kind of relationship with NATO which they desire.

BLITZER: By expanding NATO into those Warsaw Pact nations, at least in the critics' view, it looked like NATO was moving closer and closer to Russia as a potential military threat.

VLADIMIR ZHIRINOVSKY, LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY: It's beginning of the third world war if the troops of NATO will be near the border of Russia. It's a mistake.

BLITZER: There's a serious strain in the relationship today between the West and Russia; a strain that started with the expansion of NATO, the expansion that the Russians don't like to this very day, and the final chapter for the partnership for peace has not yet been written.
