Statement by Assistant to the President for Press Relations Fitzwater on the Iran Arms and Contra Aid Controversy

February 2, 1987

President Reagan will continue to provide all information required by those conducting the inquiries into the Iran matter. Should it be determined the material is needed, the President is willing to make available relevant excerpts from his personal notes. This is consistent with his meeting with the Tower board and his commitment to cooperate fully. The President wants to get to the bottom of the matter and fix what went wrong.
