    TRANSCRIPT



    KENNEDY SPEAKING.



    KENNEDY: "I THINK IT'S REALLY A QUESTION OF GREAT BRITAIN -- OBVIOUSLY, FIRST THE UNITED STATES IS INTERESTED IN THAT, BECAUSE I THINK IT STRENGTHENS EUROPE, AS WELL AS STRENGTHENS THE ECONOMIC FUTURE OF ENGLAND, BUT I THINK THAT THAT REALLY IS A MATTER THAT HAS TO BE WORKED OUT BETWEEN THE COUNTRIES OF EUROPE AND (INAUDIBLE)..."



    QUESTION: "ONE OF THE OBJECTIONS OF PRESIDENT DE GAULLE SEEMS TO BE BRITAIN'S SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH AMERICA -- WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT THIS?"



    KENNEDY: "YES, I THINK THERE SHOULD BE SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ENGLAND AND THE COUNTRIES OF EUROPE AND I THINK THE RELATIONSHIP WILL ALWAYS EXIST BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND ENGLAND, BUT I GUESS THAT MORE AND MORE IT'S GOING TO BE A QUESTION OF A VERY CLOSE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ENGLAND AND THE COUNTRIES OF EUROPE."



    QUESTION: "DO YOU SEE THIS AS INCOMPATIBLE WITH ENGLAND'S ROLE IN THE ATLANTIC COMMUNITY? HER INTENDED ROLE IN EUROPE?"



    KENNEDY: "NO, NOT A BIT. I THINK THERE ARE GOING TO BE MANY, MANY CHANGES THAT ARE GOING TO TAKE PLACE IN EUROPE, THERE HAVE BEEN OVER THE PERIOD SINCE 1963, TREMENDOUS CHANGES HERE TAKING PLACE IN THE RELATIONSHIP OF WESTERN EUROPE AND EASTERN EUROPE. THESE CHANGES ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO TAKE PLACE. THE RELATIONSHIP OF EASTERN EUROPE TO THE SOVIET UNION, THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE NATO COUNTRIES TO THE UNITED STATES. ENGLAND IS GOING TO PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN ALL OF THESE MATTERS AND I THINK CAN PLAY A ROLE OF LEADERSHIP IN DEVELOPING THE DIRECTION WHICH SOME OF THESE EVENTS ARE GOING TO TAKE.
