Bonn Economic Summit Conference Informal Exchange With Reporters.

July 17, 1978

Q. Mr. President, are you going to be discussing Berlin this morning, with the protest?

THE PRESIDENT. Yes, we'll be discussing Berlin this morning.

Q. Do you have any ideas on what you want to do?

THE PRESIDENT. No. Every year the allied leaders who are responsible for Berlin try to get together to discuss it for a while. And this is what we will be discussing at breakfast, among other things.

Q. Do you have any new problems that you have to discuss?

THE PRESIDENT. We have enough problems and opportunities; we're not looking for new ones.

Q. Do you feel good about the summit?

THE PRESIDENT. Very good, yes.

Q. Can the fellows really do anything about terrorism in what they bring forth today?


REPORTERS. What? [Laughter]

Note: The President spoke at 8:15 a.m. outside the U.S. Ambassador's residence.

Following the exchange, the President attended a breakfast meeting at the Chancellor's Bungalow with President Valery Giscard d'Estaing of France, Prime Minister James Callaghan of the United Kingdom, and Chancellor Schmidt.
