    TRANSCRIPT: MR RUSK SAID: "NOW, ONE OF THE REALLY GREAT POWERS IN THE ATLANTIC COMMUNITY IS GREAT BRITAIN AND THOSE OF US WHO WERE IN WORLD WAR TWO WOULD TESTIFY THAT IF YOU WERE IN A FIGHT YOU WOULD LIVE LONGER IF YOU SAW THE BRITISH RIGHT ALONGSIDE YOU...



    "I DON'T THINK SO. I THINK THAT WERE GOING TO HAVE A FAMILY OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE OCCASIONAL WORDS PASSED BACK AND FORTH ACROSS THE ATLANTIC, THAT PASSING INTEREST, STIR A COMMOTION, THEY DON'T REALLY GO BACK TO THE ROOT OF THE MATTER OR AFFECT THE VITALITY OF THE ALLIANCE OR THE RELATIONSHIPS WITH A COUNTRY LIKE BRITAIN. WE DO HAVE A SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BRITISH, FOR EXAMPLE, FOR ALMOST FOUR HUNDRED YEARS. WE HAVE HAD OUR SPATS IN THE PROCESS AND BECAME INDEPENDENT IN THE PROCESS BUT WE HAVE SO MANY INTERESTS - GREAT COMMON INTERESTS OF PRACTICABLE NECESSITY AS WELL AS GREAT SENTIMENTAL ATTACHMENT THAT I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY GREAT PROBLEM ON THIS".
