U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright accused far-right Austrian politician Jorg Haider of duplicity. “It’s quite unacceptable for Mr. Haider to make a statement one day and then apologize for it and then make another statement the next day,” Albright said. “That is not how we operate in our line of work.” Albright also said Deputy Treasury Secretary Stuart Eizenstat, the U.S. point man on Holocaust issues, has contacted Austrian officials to find out how they plan to tackle Holocaust-era restitution.
