The Bush Administration is sending $750,000 in medical supplies and other assistance to Romania, the White House said Wednesday. The announcement was made after President Bush arrived in this south Texas city on the Gulf of Mexico to start a six-day fishing and hunting vacation. Speaking with reporters at the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station, Bush said he is "just amazed and respectful of that change that has taken place" in Romania.

The Bush Administration, accusing President Ion Iliescu of heading Romania back down the road to repression and dictatorship, said Friday that it will drop the Bucharest regime from the list of emerging Eastern European democracies being considered for U.S. economic aid. State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said Iliescu's use of truncheon-wielding miners to attack anti-government demonstrators "strikes at the very heart of Romanian democracy."
