  • Description


    LUGGAGE BEING LOADED ON AIRCRAFT: HARRIMAN SPEAKING AT PRESS CONFERENCE; HARRIMAN BOARDING AIRCRAFT.



    TRANSCRIPT: INTERVIEWER: GOVERNOR, YOU HAVE HAD A GREAT MANY NEGOTIATIONS AND A LONG CAREER. UP UNTIL THE TIME THAT YOU STOPPED NEGOTIATING BEFORE YESTERDAY HOW DID THESE NEGOTIATIONS, LOOKING BACK OVER SEVEN MONTHS, COMPARE WITH OTHER ONES YOU'VE BEEN IN?



    HARRIMAN: THEY WERE THE SLOWEST AND MOST FRUSTRATING THAT I'VE EVER BEEN INVOLVED IN, BUT I'M GLAD AT LONG LAST THEY WERE BROUGHT TO A CONCLUSION, THE EARLY STAGES AT LEAST, SO THE NEW ADMINISTRATION CAN TAKE HOLD AND MAKE THE KIND OF HONOURABLE PEACE THAT A PRESIDENT LIKE NIXON DESIRES.
