Boris Yeltsin

BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan -- 25 AUG 1999 -- Russian President Boris Yeltsin speaks to reporters outside the Pinara Hotel during the three-day Shanghai Summit, August 25th. Kyrgyz President Askar Akaev hosted the presidents of Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and China, as the leaders focused on trade issues, regional security and signing border demarcation treaties. Yeltsin told the media that he is "healthy and ready to fight" following heart bypass surgery earlier this month. Michael Forster Rothbart
