    MR. RUSK SAID (SOF): "THERE ARE MANY THINGS WHICH ONE CAN SAY ABOUT THE GERMAN AND BERLIN PROBLEM RIGHT NOW. I KNOW THAT INTEREST IS CENTRING RIGHT NOW ON THE PROBLEM OF NEGOTIATIONS. I THINK THE WEST IS UNIFIED IN BEING DETERMINED TO DEFEND THE VITAL INTERESTS OF THE WEST AGAINST PRESSURES FROM THE EAST. I THINK ALSO THAT THE WEST, AS WITH REASONABLE PEOPLE, HOPE THAT THESE QUESTIONS CAN BE RESOLVED AND THESE VITAL INTERESTS CAN BE PROTECTED BY PEACEFUL MEANS. NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE SOVIET UNION ON MATTERS IN WHICH WE APPEAR TO BE IN AGREEMENT ARE NOT ALWAYS SIMPLE. I THINK IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT NEGOTIATIONS ARE NOT JUST A GAME. WHEN GREAT POWERS NEGOTIATE WITH EACH OTHER IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT THERE BE SOME PROSPECT OF A SUCCESSFUL OUTCOME BECAUSE A FAILURE OF A NEGOTIATION ITSELF CONTRIBUTES TO TENSION. IF NEGOTIATION IS HELD AND PRODUCES NO RESULT THE SITUATION IS NOT QUITE THE SAME AS IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN IF NEGOTIATION HAD NOT OCCURRED".
