§ The Prime Minister
I visited the United States from 24th to 27th June.
At the invitation of the organising committee for the Hubert Humphrey Memorial Award, I delivered a speech on foreign affairs at a dinner in New York on 26th June. A copy of the speech has been placed in the Library of the House.
I took the opportunity of my visit to meet and exchange views with President Carter. The subjects covered during our wide-ranging discussions included the Bonn summit, particularly the question of aid and the multilateral trade negotiations, energy, East-West relations including SALT and the comprehensive test ban treaty, and Africa, with particular reference to Rhodesia.
In addition, I held meetings with some leading figures from the United States aerospace industry to inform myself about their plans.
