GV - Kissinger commenting on discussion at press conference.
"The talks between Prince Fand, President Nixon, Secretary or State Kissinger and other high-ranking American officials have raised questions about the role of Saudi Arabian oil as a trade-off for American weapons - but secretary Kissinger insists that this is not the case in these discussions."
"The major subjects on the agents are technical cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the United States, with respect to industrial development, scientific cooperation, technological help on such matter as solar enemy and agricultural development, and some discussions on meeting the defence needs of Saudi Arabia."
"In a lunch-time toast to Prince Fahd, one of Saudi Arabia's most powerful officials, President Nixon made the same point - he said that a relationship between two countries based only on oil would not last very long. Nevertheless, one State Dept official said the United States hopes that this visit will d???-starte to the Saudis that their relations with his country is important and that they won't repeat the oil embargo."
