Former Secretary of State George P. Shultz declared Monday that the United Nations' diplomacy has failed in the former Yugoslav federation and called on the Clinton Administration to launch large-scale air strikes against Serbian military targets in both Bosnia and Serbia.

Former President George Bush misrepresented his role in the arms-for-hostage deals with Iran while he was vice president, former Secretary of State George P. Shultz says in memoir excerpts published Sunday. In the excerpts, which appear in Time magazine, Shultz says he was "astonished" to read a 1987 interview in the Washington Post in which Bush said no one strongly opposed the arms deals during 1985 and 1986 White House meetings. Shultz remembers those meetings differently.

Donald T. Regan, White House chief of staff under President Ronald Reagan, said Monday that he has been assured by Iran-Contra prosecutors that he is not a target of investigation for possible illegal actions. Regan's office said it had received a letter from Lawrence E. Walsh, independent counsel in the Iran-Contra scandal, stating that "Mr. Regan's status is 'witness.' He is not a 'subject' or a 'target' of the grand jury's investigation."
