(Moscow: Peter Jennings) The Gorbachev interview continued. [In response to questions from Jennings, President Mikhail GORBACHEV - (thru simultaneous translation) says some, like former Soviet foreign minister Eduard Shevardnadze and "architect of perestroika" Aleksandr Yakovlev, could not put up with the cross-fire directed at the president and general secretary; says now people can express opinions in support of Russian President Boris Yeltsin and that both their views converge; talks about role of his wife Raisa, but affirms that she does not take part in decision making; says we are still making forward progress, so do not write me off.]

Jennings, Peter
