White House Briefing on the Iranian Situation and United States Energy Conservation
Warren Christopher continues his comments from part three. He answers questions on topics including the condition of the hostages, the health of the Shah of Iran, and Iran's instability. Sectretary of the Treasury Bill Miller then reiterates that the ban on Iranian oil is designed to make it impossible for Iran to use their oil to influence United States policy. He also feels that even having to pay slightly higher prices for oil will have a negligible effect on the American economy and mentions the freezing of Iranian assets. He answers questions on topics including the status of Iranian students in the United States and the particulars of the oil ban.
