"Rather than run the risk of making a historic statement, I thought I'll take a few questions. My talks here were very good, and were conducted in the friendly and constructive atmosphere that's been characteristic of our relationship, without agenda and without the necessity of taking formal positions, and as far as I could tell, there was a complete identity of views - so the relations between the United Kingdom and the United States have never been better, and made a great contribution I believe, both to European unity and Atlantic cooperation.
I'll be glad to take two or three question
Q: "What are you going to do about the order that you appear in the Washington Court tomorrow morning."
Q: "Do you have any other reactions to the order?"
"No, I don't thing it would be appropriate for me to make a comment."
Q: "Mr Secretary - are we moving any close towards joint action on oil prices and oil supplies, or is the free-for-all going to continue?"
"As you know, the Energy Coordinating Group is meeting in Brussels this week - the US view has always been that the energy crisis is one that simply car??? be solved on a national basis - I believe this view is shared as well by the British Government. We strongly support cooperative action. I don't believe free-for-all is a correct term for what is going on now, because we're moving towards a much more coordinated approach on at least some of the aspects of the energy problem."
Q: "Mr Secretary - as you finish the Western European portion of your consultations what is your general view of the overall state of relations at this point between the Unites States and the Allies?"
"The relations between the United States and the allies are the best that they have been in my recollection during our administration. We had some difficult discussions last year - I think they all called attention to the fundamentals - the process of consultation is working well, and I think that the basic objectives that the dialogue intended to serve have been achieved and relations are very good. Thank you."
