In the afternoon, Bob Blackwill calls me from the White House. He reports that Shevardnadze has made clear to Baker what significance Ð above all for Gorbachev Ð the final declaration of the special NATO summit possesses with regard to German unification. Blackwill asks me to agree our positions with France. Margaret Thatcher has big problems with the American draft, which goes too far for her. Therefore it is important that the USA, the Federal Republic, and France are in agreement.
