    KISSINGER: 'I would like to make a few observations on this trip and I know I speak to you also for my Syrian colleagues.



    Relations between Syria and the American people have always been good. As a result of the very intensive, very constructive discussions that have taken place in the last four weeks, the relations between the Governments of Syria and the United States have greatly improved and the mutual comprehension of each other problem has grown.



    We have made a decision to continue towards and improvement of our relations on a very broad front. We consider this one of the very positive outcomes of my visit to the Middle East'
