    TRANSCRIPT: NIXON: THERE ARE DIFFERENCES THAT DIVIDE THE WORLD TODAY -- VERY DEEP DIFFERENCES. BUT AS WE SAW VERY DRAMATICALLY AND VERY MOVINGLY IN BUCHAREST TODAY AND YESTERDAY, THOSE THINGS WHICH UNITE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE WORLD ARE MUCH STRONGER THAN THOSE WHICH DIVIDE US. AND I CAN ASSURE ALL WHO ARE LISTENING TO ME NOW THAT WHILE THE PATH TO PEACE MAY SEEM VERY DIFFICULT, AND PRESERVING THE PEACE IS OF COURSE A TASK WHICH WE HAVE FOUND TO BE TREMENDOUSLY ARDUOUS AND HAZARDOUS OVER THESE PAST FEW YEARS, THAT THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, DEEP IN THE HEARTS, WANT PEACE. THEY'RE ON THE SIDE OF PEACE: THAT IS THE MESSAGE THAT COMES FROM ALL OVER ASIA, IT COMES FORM EASTERN EUROPE, AND I SENSE IT AGAIN AS I STEP HERE ON BRITISH SOIL.
