AT&T ISSUES STATEMENT

 AT&T ISSUES STATEMENT
 WASHINGTON, D.C., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was


released today by AT&T:
 We are delighted with the State Department's announcement that the United States government has lifted the ban on telecommunications services between the United States and Vietnam. We look forward to providing telephone service as quickly as possible, especially for the 700,000 Vietnamese Americans living in the U.S. Under the guidelines announced today, AT&T would deposit money due Vietnam into a blocked account and release it only under the direction of the U.S. government.
 AT&T has actively pressed for this kind of arrangement since 1988, believing that people's ability to communicate with relatives and friends around the world should not be tied to U.S. economic sanctions.
 We hope that this trend continues and that a similar arrangement is permitted in North Korea, the last country to which the United States prohibits telecommunications services.
