    CARTER: "We are committed to NATO and the defence of Europe and any solution to these problems would be helpful to the entire world. Our country is also deeply concerned about the Cyprus question. We are ... hope that there will be a unified Cyprus, one nation in harmony, and there again we are very willing to add our good services when we are requested to help; but cannot interfere except when called upon to participate."



    CARTER: "Well I've outlined to the Prime Minister how important the relationships with Turkey have always been to us, how in times of crisis we've always been staunch friends of one another. The alliance with Turkey is crucial to the security of Europe and to our own national future."
