Statement by Assistant to the President for Press Relations Fitzwater on the Terrorist Bomb Attack on Secretary of State Shultz in Bolivia


August 8, 1988


Terrorist tactics, such as used against Secretary Shultz and his motorcade in Bolivia today, are always repugnant. Thankfully, the Secretary's party was not injured, but the fact remains that an attack on U.S. officials cannot be tolerated. We ask the Government of Bolivia to bring those responsible to justice.
