CAUTION: NOT FOR RELEASE BEFORE 4:00P.M., JUNE 7
ARRIVAL STATEMENT BY AMBASSADOR MICHAEL MANSFIELD
TOKYO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
JUNE 7, 1977
I am especially happy to be here with you as United
States Ambassador to Japan at this particular time in history.
Never before have our two great countries shared so many
common goals. Nor perhaps has the future presented us
with so many common internat1onal challenges. It is my
opin1on -- indeed, 1t is my conviction -- that together
we can meet those challenges. In my recent talks with
Pres1dent Carter, he stressed the importance that he per-sonally
attaches to susta1ning the closest possible rela-tionship
between Japan and the United States. He regards
such t1es as the cornerstone of American foreign policy --
and as an essential part of any effort to solve the problems
fac1ng the world community. I share that v1ew completely.
And it will be one of my primary goals as Ambassador of
the Un1ted States to consult fully and frankly w1th the
Government of Japan in the hope of further deepening the
sp1r1t of cooperation that has come to mark the unique
partnership between our two countries .
