"[Bush, Baker, Gorbachev] agreed to try to facilitate the normalization of the relations and the resumption of collaboration between the two countries [Russia and the United States]. They will consider which measures, including joint ones, to take," the statement by the foundation's press office said, following a phone conversation of the three politicians.
"The goal should be the compromise that satisfies both sides. No one should claim victory. Moving past the current impasse will be everyone's victory," Gorbachev said.
Gorbachev served as the president of the Soviet Union in 1990-1991. George Bush Senior was the President of the United States in 1989-1993 with Baker as the Secretary of State in 1989-1992.
