I am genuinely delighted by your acceptance of our offers to fly a British Astronaut on a future Space Shuttle mission. I am also pleased by the warm hospitality extended Jim Beggs during his recent visit to London.
I hope you will agree with me that international participation on the manned space station program can provide a highly visible, highly positive centerpience for demonstrating our unity of purpose, goodwill and friendship. Toward that end, I am hopeful that the London Summit can provide an opportunity for the participants to establish the political underpinning for this joint venture. I look forward to seeing you in June.
